Destroying Western Civilization for Leftist Control

By Eddie Howell

The following short videos are of Professor Alexandre Del Valle’s interview with the French news organization Damocl├Ęs. He explains that that the radical left wants to destroy the nation-state and the West, and are using NGOs funded by George Soros and other billionaires, along with criminal organizations, to help accomplish this.

Day by day, we’re seeing more signs that the radical-left-controlled U. S. Democratic Party and the globalist elites of the EU and elsewhere are stepping up their efforts to bring down Western, historically Christian, civilization and nations. The “refugee” crisis engulfing Europe, and the related Islamic jihadist movement have been largely manufactured by leftist globalist elites who want to cement their places in power by replacing the current populations with “immigrants” who will eventually receive full citizenship and voting rights, and, of course, vote for the politicians that encouraged their invasion. This they hope to accomplish even at the cost of the national identity of the European countries, and eventually even their nationhood.

This is also what the left wants to do in America. Their hatred of Donald Trump and his supporters has been stirred up because he represents an obstacle to their plans. Had Hillary Clinton been elected president, she would have facilitated their program as she promised, and soon it would have been arranged that there would be a one-party political system in America, going all in for global socialism. The well-known Clinton and leftist corruption would have been hushed up so much that anyone calling attention to it in an effective way would have to be silenced and discredited.

American sovereignty and freedom are on the line, as is Western civilization itself. The left would like to suppress Christianity and substitute socialism-communism.

Americans and Europeans should realize that socialism and communism are essentially the same thing, and lead inevitably to totalitarian dictatorship and murders of many citizens. There is no chance that “next time” socialism-communism will be set up with better people and a better system than, say, the Stalinist Soviet Union, because socialism-communism is inherently lawless and criminal, and incentivized so that the most cleverly ruthless people are soon in charge, and getting rid of anyone who shows effective opposition, and finally, also getting rid of anyone who fits the leaders’ baseless paranoid fears.

The entire popular appeal of this system is based on class envy and stirred-up anger that encourages atrocities as means to gain power. Rulers like Stalin, Mao, or Hitler are simply the natural results of such a lawless system which finally boils down to the law of the jungle and, in effect, the end of any decent civilization, let alone economic prosperity for any but the top echelons. The promised equality never happens.

The keys to an actual successful (although not perfect) society include individual liberty, free markets, and real justice. These things require, as John Adams said, a virtuous people who possess a love of liberty and country and also an underlying spiritual foundation of faith in God. Also required is a willingness to defend these things. Otherwise, the result will be an oppressive society.

Democrats Upset over Trump's State of the Union Address

Be Eddie Howell

Perhaps one of the biggest stories coming out of President Trump’s State of the Union address is that although he struck a conciliatory tone and themes of American tradition, founding principles and patriotism, the Democrats in his Capitol audience looked like they had never heard of any of these things, and found the whole thing upsetting their stomachs. Yet the people who watched it on TV saw it favorably by 75%.

Paul Joseph Watson, in the following video, gives us a review of their reactions:

My comments:

1. He’s right.

2. Their responses in the chamber and in subsequent tweets reflect very faithfully the current communist line, as you can quickly tell by checking any Communist Party or socialist website. That’s because the so-called “progressives” in Congress are overwhelmingly socialist and many are closely connected to communist organizations. See Trevor Loudon’s book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists, and Progressives in the U.S. Congress for extensive documentation. Check out Loudon’s You Tube videos.

3. As Loudon pointed out, when a New Zealand leader was warning about communist subversion in that country a few years ago, the man was accused of seeing “communists under every bed.” His astute reply was that the communists are in the bed, and ordering breakfast.

4. Communist goals have not changed since Cold War days. They are not loyal to the U.S., and are partnering with Islamic jihadists to cause chaos in America, through, for example, Antifa and CAIR.

Germany's Capitulation to "Refugee" Invasion

The immigration (or invasion) of millions of Muslim “refugees” into Germany is changing that country's society and weakening their German identity to the point that, according to Paul Joseph Watson, represents total capitulation and surrender to the Islamization of Germany as an inevitability. Other countries in Europe have similar situations. Watson presents a compelling argument which should serve as a warning to those who want to open their borders to massive Muslim immigration. The following video explains:

Germany's experience shows the dangers of mass immigration of people in the name of humanitarianism and “diversity” when many of those people are out to destroy the host society and impose an alien way of life, while bringing greatly increased violent crime and no assimilation. President Trump is right to demand “extreme vetting” and substantially reduce the intake of refugees.

Communist Goals Have Been Progressing for Decades, Too Successfully

In his 1958 anti-communist book The Naked Communist, W. Cleon Skousen listed “45 Goals of Communism,” based on his research and events of the time. Skousen was not without his critics, whose main arguments were ad hominem, not substantively addressing the arguments he developed in his books and speeches. The 60th Anniversary Edition of The Naked Communist develops Skousen’s notes to show the current level of progress of these goals, which is considerable. The goals, some of which have been entirely fulfilled, some partially, and only one not at all, are still in effect. Although the Soviet Union collapsed, communism did not. It’s still alive and active. There are numerous communist and communist-related organizations in the U. S. besides the Communist Party USA. Some of these have been described in my recent blog articles, citing information from authorities such as Skousen, Herbert Romerstein, Trevor Loudon, M. Stanton Evans, and Whittaker Chambers.

Communists have not forgotten or abandoned any of these goals, and through their agents and others in the U.S., including governments at all levels, still work to achieve and maintain them. The following video, released by Skousen’s publisher, lists these 45 specific goals.

Do you recognize some pattern here, in terms of developments the past few years? These communist organizations are loyal to neither the U. S. nor our Constitution, as their own websites clearly indicate. For example, see here and here.

Communist Coup D'Etat Attempt Is in Progress on Many Fronts

By Eddie Howell

The Communist Party is like the multi-headed hydra of myth. It appears in many guises and under many names – the party itself, their close allies the Democratic Socialists of America, their front groups, their donors, their labor unions (they control the AFL-CIO), their entertainment industry contacts, MSM people, people in academia, and many useful idiots. Since they have people at the levers of power, a relatively small number of people wield great influence in American society. Few Americans understand that we have a serious threat on our hands.

Then there's the Robert Mueller investigation, which has the leftists salivating and hoping for an outcome of impeachment or worse.

Besides the above-mentioned, we have the thugs of Antifa and Black lives Matter, and the communists running much of the states of California and Minnesota. In America, organized socialists and communists are basically the same thing, and include most “Progressive” and “Liberal” Democrat politicians. Right now they are working to bring down Donald Trump, and America, by creating chaos in America through street rioting, encouraging radical Muslim jihad, and numerous other efforts.

Having gotten a good start under communist President Barack Obama, whose administration still has its socialist fingerprints on much of our government, the “Resistance” is quite active, and has been fairly successful in recruiting ignorant young people into its fold. The following are a few facts about these problems:

  1. George Soros, a major donor to communist causes, recently allocated $18 billion of his fortune to his “charitable” foundations and political organizations, to use for such things as paying rioters and protesters and financing voter fraud, etc. (It's also a tax shelter.)
  2. The Hollywood elites continue to accuse Donald Trump and his supporters of being racists, bigots, etc. The Golden Globes Oprah-fest speeches were mostly about the sexual predators, but Robert De Niro managed to work in a profanity-laced tirade against the president.
  3. The Democratic Party is home to many communists and socialists among its politicians and bureaucrats, who cannot support our Constitution because socialism is unconstitutional, and they are therefore in violation of their oath of office, not to mention the fact that their loyalty to the United States is at best extremely questionable.
  4. The Communist Party USA, despite its denials, was controlled by and loyal to the Soviet Union, and heavily involved in Soviet espionage from the the 1930s through World War II (when the Soviets were our allies), and the Cold War. Communists in the U.S. government were influential enough to make sure that the communists took control of China after the war. They guided the details, although FDR and Eisenhower, unlike Churchill, were anxious to please Stalin because of Russia's participation in the war. American Soviet agent Alger Hiss was part of the American delegation to the Yalta Conference as an adviser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.* Later, Hiss participated in the founding of the United Nations and was its first Secretary-General.
  5. Especially since the Obama Administration, most of the major news media has become the propaganda arm of the leftists, pretty much killing traditional American journalism. It's doubtful it can be brought back.
  6. And now, one of the fronts the communist-guided leftists are working on is raising questions about Donald Trump's mental health (which seems considerably better than their own), with psychiatrists unethically diagnosing trouble where they haven't examined the patient. Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz, a principled man who isn't part of this charade, recognizes the seriousness of the problems this can cause and speaks eloquently against it on Fox News Channels “Fox and Friends” program:

The solution to this is not simple and certainly not easy, but it is possible, and, I believe, would include the following things, among others:

  1. Get the Justice Department to look into dealing with disloyal organizations and violent “protesters.”
  2. Promote a plan to get back, as much as we can, to the founding principles of America. We have strayed quite a lot from them and are paying the price for it. I think the best readable book I've seen that explains what these principles are, what they're based on, and how they have been used, is W. Cleon Skousen's excellent The Five Thousand Year Leap: Twenty-Eight Ideas That Are Changing the World.
  3. Educate people on our Constitution.
  4. Require background checks for federal legislators to serve on committees of Congress.
  5. Declare the Muslim Brotherhood and Antifa terrorist organizations.
  6. Pray for a strong spiritual awakening in America. The ultimate answer to our situation is to get our nation right with God. This does not mean we should be a theocracy. But the Founders knew that a successful republic requires a religious and virtuous people.
  7. Stop government promotion of social experimentation and gender confusion.
  8. Control the border and fix illegal immigration. Send “refugees” back home if possible.
  9. Firmly reinforce law and order. There should be no sharia law in the U.S. and there should not be any “no-go” zones. Violent demonstrators and rioters must be dealt with firmly. Give law enforcement adequate support and protection to do their jobs.
  10. Try to keep an optimistic and cheerful attitude, and don't lose your sense of humor. This isn't over yet!

Video: FSB Keeps Big Banks Too Big to Fail and Too Big to Jail

By Eddie Howell

The globalist NWO elites, including the big banking cartel (represented by the Federal Reserve, U.S. Treasury Department, and the Financial Stability Board, and others) seem to have found a way to effectively shield the biggest banks from punishment for their financial crimes.

A video at The Daily Bail, Bailout Films' “All the Plenary's Men” is instructive. It's an hour long and gets a bit technical, but you can's miss the message. The Financial Stability Board (FSB) (under the Bank for International Settlements, or BIS) is an international organization that claims it has the authority to enforce “global standards” for banks and financial institutions. Apparently, one of its main functions is to protect the biggest banks by proclaiming their several “immunities” against prosecution, document seizure, asset seizure, and prosecution of individuals, among other privileges, in violation of U.S., British, and probably other nations' laws, but immunities which the Obama Departments of Justice and the Treasury followed on orders from their British FSB colleagues, violating U.S. laws.

The FSB considers these particular banks “too big to fail and too big to jail.” That is why in the HSBC's serious money-laundering scandal, U.S. portion (2013), HSBC was allowed to negotiate its own fine, and never turned over any information that it did not itself select, nor did the company or any of their people face criminal prosecution, but the offending senior bankers were fired and the company paid a large fine (over $1.5 billion) that it calculated for itself. Thus the organization protects the big banks and supersedes national laws, which the federal government seems OK with. Rule of law, anyone?

Bad Modern “Art” Is Ugly and Destructive

By Eddie Howell

Paul Joseph Watson, in the following video, gives an honest evaluation of modern art (which is actually not art). These are literal garbage or stupid, ugly “creations,” but people often manage to get paid major amounts of money for them. The video skewers the fakery and pretentiousness of these offensive and sorry pieces, and shows how they fit in to the “politically correct” mold of the Social Justice Warriors of today, much as Socialist Realism fit into the communist line in the Soviet Union. Anything not complying is dismissed and made irrelevant.

Caution: contains strong language

As an additional note, in the anti-communist classic The Naked Communist, W. Cleon Skousen's list of “The 45 Goals of Communism,” No. 23 reads,
Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive meaningless art.”*

Bear in mind that communist goals have not changed, and are being actively pursued in America today.
