            The Fascist Roots Behind Today’s Justification of Political Violence–ie ANTIFA

            Antifa began a century ago in 1921 as a front group under the direction of the Soviet Union to incite a Communist revolution in Germany. In 1923 the Politburo of the Communist Party in Soviet Russia held a meeting to plan an armed insurrection to overthrow the struggling democracy in Germany’s Weimar Republic. Following the Politburo’s instructions, the German Communist Party formed its armed movement to silence rival political parties through violence and to overthrow the government. The party named its movement ANTIFASCHISTISCHE AKTION.

            The party chose the name Antifaschistische Aktion, now known as Antifa, because an Italian Marxist fell out with his nation’s Socialist Party, founded his own party, and took power in 1922. Although he still held leftist views, nationalized 75% of Italy’s economy, and expanded the state’s social safety net, he believed that a hierarchy should be part of society and ignored the dictates from both the Socialists in his former party and the Communists in Moscow. For this heresy, his new party was branded as a rogue movement.

            His name was Benito Mussolini and he was the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Fascist Party. This was another socialist party, which French socialists supported but the Soviets condemned. Even before seizing power, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was never very tolerant of other socialist parties; after it seized power, it executed those parties’ members.

            For the communists, the word “fascist” came to mean renegade socialist and eventually became a derogatory term to be used in attempts to vilify anyone they disapproved of, socialist or not. However, contrary to what we may have been told, fascism was never a right-wing movement. The reality was, and still is, that fascism is a socialist political ideology of the left. Antifa was one left-wing movement’s battle against another left-wing movement.

            Similarly, the National Socialist German Worker’s Party, usually referred to as Nazis, was also a socialist party of the left. National Socialist Germany under Hitler provided citizens with subsidized health care, housing, day care, vacations abroad, state jobs, a social safety net, and strong gun control laws. Factions within the party also advocated nationalizing the economy.

            Unlike the fascists, the National Socialists wanted to eliminate social classes and advanced a social experiment to achieve that goal. Nevertheless, the communists in Germany and the Soviet Union still called them fascists and considered them bitter rivals. The reality is that the communist, National Socialist, and fascist governments were ideological siblings — totalitarian, one-party states, which focused on collectivism, and centrally planned economies, where individual rights had to be given up for the collective good.

        Bernie isn’t being thrown into the dumpster. He is actually climbing the step ladder, willingly, to jump in for cash. His supporters are just too stupid to see it until he banks the cash. Wonder if the Red Guard will give Bernie his “Cultural Revolution Moment” after he sells them out again.

        It is comical that Bernie is even a Democrat Party candidate, because as soon as the campaign check clears the bank he goes back to being Senator Sanders (Independent-VT). He is even too ashamed to be identifies as part of the democrat party except when their is cash on the line.

    With Steely Cold Anger, We Will Never Forget……….

    >>> We will never forget on 9-24-2019, Nasty Nancy announcing the illegal Articles of Impeachment while our President Trump was at the UN ready to give his best speech.

    >>> We will never forget on 12-4-2019 the Evil Dems holding the hearing with law professors when our President Trump was attending important NATO meetings in Europe.

    >>> We will never forget on 1-15-2020, Nasty Nancy sending the fake Impeachment Articles 10 minutes after our President Trump signed an historic trade deal with China that no other president has ever been able to accomplish.

    >>> We will never forget also on 1-15-2020, childish Nancy signing the fake articles of impeachment with bullet shaped pens with her name engraved in gold that cost American Taxpayers $15,000 while President Trump signed the historic $200 Billion US-China Trade Agreement with a Two-Buck Sharpie, the same trade deal that is now the most praised trade deal the world is talking about.

    >>> We will never forget on 1-17-2020, spiteful Pelosi went on Maher TV show, fist-bumping Bill and laughing, then she declared to President Trump on TV “You are impeached forever”.

    ***** Well, Traitor Pelosi, the REAL American People now declare you on full public forum…..”You, Nancy Pelosi, are now better known as the most Dishonorable and Unpatriotic Speaker of the House ForEver.”

    The Dems are jealous, sore losers who just will NOT give up their “candy”. They just throw their hissy-fit tantrums not caring they are putting our President Trump and our country in danger. Pure Evil Traitors running Fake Congress, with the exception of a handfuls of few good Patriots

        when normal, honest people are tied up.

        Around Georgia, it’s holding final bond meetings
        in court for tons of HUD financed future rot.
        The day before Thanksgiving or Christmas.

        Look at the timing of Obamacare. Passed on
        Christmas Eve. Corrupt county comissioners
        have their meetings during weekday hours.
        So they can do the most damage when anyone
        that asks questions will have to take time off
        from work. The game is to do the timing so that
        the rubes are busy. So they can pretend that
        we are actually for whatever felony they have

          Say you owe $10,000 income tax and someone needs $10,000 piece of equipment for his business but does not have $10,000. You form a LLC equipment leasing company and buy the $10,000 equipment. You now claim the $10,000 ITC and the equipment lessee pays you back the $10,000 over a period and buys the equipment for a dollar at end of term. You put the $10,000 payback in a tax-deferred retirement such as a 401-K.

          Now that is quick and dirty general terms. I doubt you will ever learn it in college because the professors are all Libtards and couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with the directions on the heel.

I say you deserve to get the credit. We need more credits like that one.

            I do not now recall the name of the Supreme Court Justice – was it Learned Hand? – who observed that the real value of the Government’s ability to levy taxes is not to collect money, but to provide incentives to others at no cost to itself.

No more passing on YOUR accumulated IRAs, etc to your children and grandchildren for longterm distribution.

            Hit up those inheritances just when your children are mostly likely at their highest earning levels. The government gaveth and now the government taketh away. Bet all those Old Money Trust Fund babies are included.

        p,
        A long serirs of court rulings affirm that any political party can, basically run their party any way they want to, and there is no legal requirement that the party follow its own rules.

        So, it is legal for the RNC or the DNC to ‘rig’ their primary process if they want to.

        Freedom of association. Its legal to form an American Conmunist party, freedom of association, again. So, it is legal for the Democrat party to be the defacto American Conmunist party, if the leadership want to.

        The remedy isat the ballot box, not the courts.

        Reality is BOTH parties, or both halves of the two-faced Uniparty, have regularly engaged in ‘rigging’ their primary process.

        Getting rid of the ‘smoke filled room’nominating process, and going to primaries and caucuses was NOT in order to make the process more “Democratic”; it was to create the APPEARANCE that it was more Democratic.

        To give the base, for each party, the illusion that they had a voice in picking the nominee, while in reality denying them any such voice.

        Look at what Bush did to McStain in 2000, I think it was, in North Carolina, or what Romney did to Ron Paul in 2012, in,…Maine, I think.

        Point being Republicons and Democrats have long exerted control to limit voters to choosing tweedle dum or tweedle dummer, lesser of two weavils.

        Every once in a while, it doesn’t work.

        Further, the air defense systems are actually tied into the flight control system of most national civil aviation authorities. They had this airliner in “sight” from the time it was parked at the gate through engagement via other tracking sources, than the on-board transponder.

        Also, as has been the case in the past with other complex weapons sold by the Russians (or any other nation for that matter), there were Russian “advisors” on-site assisting the missile firing battery and tactical fire control center.

And then there’s the issue of Antifa showing up again . Will a known violence-prone organization be granted access into what’s a confined space with limited security capability ?

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/01/18/boris-start-trade-negotiations-us-before-eu-report/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    Excerpt:

    The UK is set to leave the EU at the end of this month, but the EU has already started to make threats, suggesting European leaders’ willingness to agree on a trade deal is dependent upon the UK continuing to abide by EU regulations — which themselves could stop the UK signing FTAs with other countries.

    Prime Minister Johnson is said to have privately told the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen during a Downing Street meeting this week that upcoming talks between London and Brussels will be based on negotiating an ambitious FTA, “not on alignment”.

    The reported remarks signal Prime Minister Johnson’s commitment to making the UK globally competitive after Brexit and that he is prepared to walk away from the EU without a trade deal.

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/01/18/january-18th-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1094/comment-page-1/#comment-7757443)

    – – – – – –
    Saturday night update – 1/18/20

    – 2 new drone videos from Project 1.
    – Tweet about bricks getting placed today at Project 1. Includes photo of bricks.
    – 5 photos with garbage on Mexican side of border.
    – Misc. tweets.

    – – – – – –
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    (Fisher receives $268M of this $400M project)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.) (2 days of posts here & here.)
    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.

    ***Praise: Fisher Industries and crews were able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing (while still working within the limits set by the Temporary Restraining Order) up through Dec 12th, after which they agreed to stop until Jan 4th, the day after the amended TRO expired.
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Although Judge Crane extended the TRO another week to Jan 9, he lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher may now continue to shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Randy Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 Fisher was able to begin installing bollards on Sunday (Jan 12) and work is progressing well. Approx. 1,500ft. completed as of Tuesday (Jan 14) evening. (To be completed 8 to 10 days later, depending on weather.)

    ***Praise: (Reported on 12/11/19)… Although WBTW doesn’t have $50 million for Project 2, as a result of the success on Project 1, investors have united to come together to secure that stretch of the border on Project 2.
    (Update)… Fisher is taking the lead on Project 2 and is covering most of the money for the wall costing ~$42 million. (Haven’t heard any more about other investors with the exception of WBTW as a minor investor. Not sure what the discrepancy is between 40M and 50M; perhaps it’s because Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile ~ $49M for 3.5mi.)
    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***Praise:🇺🇸 (12/22/19)… Brian Kolfage was awarded Patriot of the Year award by Turning Point USA at their Student Action Summit for his work with WBTW in helping to securing our border.

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name:
    – for safety and good weather for the work crews as they work on Project 2; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted (w/ no new TROs) until completion (~ 8 to 10 days later).

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned.
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction for the work crews, security personnel, legal team, CBP, DHS, Army and all involved in Project’s 2, 3, 4, and other projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)

    – that Project 2’s wall will prove that WBTW/Fisher Industries can rapidly complete large sections of wall, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that this wall would prove that the design is sound and they are able to safely and effectively build it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley (Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain)
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW/Fisher Industries to build 250 miles on Private Property in Texas

    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.
    (This, in addition to ongoing fundraising from public/investors, will allow WBTW/Fisher Industries to continue to self fund projects, build their reputation/resume, while they continue to pursue other avenues which could lead to government contracts down the road.)

    NYPD union chief and ICE leaders blame Bill de Blasio for 92-year-old woman’s murder ‘by illegal immigrant’ who was freed from jail six weeks beforehand thanks to the sanctuary city policy
    18 January 2020

    …blamed Mayor Bill De Blasio for the rape and murder of a 92-year-old woman by an undocumented migrant who had been let out of custody under the city’s sanctuary status last year.

    Maria Fuertes was sexually assaulted and strangled outside her Queens home earlier this month with a broken spine,rib fractures and bruising. She later died in the hospital

    ICE had requested to be notified when he was released but because New York follows a sanctuary city policy for undocumented migrants, they never go the call.

    Lynchburg, VA – Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. spoke out against pending gun-control legislation and warned Virginia legislators that law enforcement officials and citizens won’t sit still and do nothing if they continued to vote to take away Second Amendment rights.

    “Could you imagine if the governor was trying to take away our First Amendment rights? Well, the Second Amendment is just as sacred,” Falwell said.

    “I think they’re going to be faced with civil disobedience, not just by citizens but by police officers. And I think it’s what they deserve,” he added,

    FTA – The more Nancy Pelosi tries to get people to take her seriously, the more ridiculous she is. During the impeachment vote, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we all just wear black.”

    For an entire month after that, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate.” This week, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we have a solemn procession across the floor of the Capitol.” No? Not that? How about fancy ceremonial pens? Would that make anyone take them seriously? Any takers? Nancy stopped just short of ordering commemorative plates from the Franklin Mint to see if that might convince America we’re in a Very Serious Crisis.

        Best solution: Virginia sells the few Northern carpetbagger-invaded, federal-employee infested counties to the Federal Government for inclusion into an expanded “District of Columbia.” (91 of Virginia’s 95 counties are Second Amendment sanctuaries.)

        Second best: Virginia reverse-secedes those counties, and a 51st State is created.

        In either event, real Virginians could then elect 2 new Republican Senators, in addition to overwhelmingly Republican legislative chambers and executives (Governor, AG, etc).

More numerous rural counties would out Senate the state/governor influence, but would be underrepresented by the votes for federal senators (which is why VA changed their senate electing system.

    A Century of Democrat Socialism

    ….
    Now we are in 2020 and see that the Democratic Party has identified itself with proponents of the so-called Green New Deal. In reality, it has joined with the hard left that has, since 1912 and later in 1948 and in 2018, called for government ownership of huge sectors of the economy which are listed here. In the Green New Deal proposals, our chief concern is that section which reads, “providing and leveraging, in a way that ensures that the public receives appropriate ownership stakes and returns on investment, adequate capital (including through community grants, public banks, and other public financing), technical expertise, [and] supporting policies,….” The key word in this “Green” obscurantist lingo is “ownership.” Healthcare, agriculture, energy production (gas, electricity, oil), education, technology, and who knows what else will be owned by the government in the name of “climate change” to insure the well-being of American citizens and of the world. Climate change has become the buzzword substituting for the longstanding Marxist “class struggle.”

    There is a direct line of identity from the Socialist Party of 1912 through the Progressive Party of 1948 through the Socialist Platform of 2018 to the left-wing candidates that are offering themselves for the Democratic Party nomination, most especially Bernie Sanders (a self-designated Democratic Socialist) and Elizabeth Warren. The others are chameleons, who, unlike Harry S. Truman, do not have the gumption to flatly repudiate the Green New Deal and the Socialist agenda even where they are not wholly in agreement with it. Just their willingness to compromise and “be flexible” in listening to the left-wing bilge itself reveals a weakness of character and a lack of commitment to American principles of free enterprise and Constitutional integrity. Therefore the hard-leftist doctrines of the Socialists and Communists which — while partially implemented by the Democrats in the past going back to Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt — are now in the ascendancy and must be given a message of utter repudiation.

    • To me the most obvious problem with all this “leftist political talking” is that it won’t work. At least, not as they describe it. There are over 329 million people here right now. Sure, there are a lot of problems with how we’re doing things right now, especially in the realm of health care, but you can’t just snap your elect-me-president fingers and solve anything. The simple fact (IMHO) is not only that we don’t know how to solve these issues “on this scale,” but that we’re not attempting to talk about it.

      Senator Sanders, Senator Warren, what are either of you doing for this country “right now,” using “the powers you right-now have,” in order to do … anything? … about the issues that you profess to be so very concerned about? Any bills being drafted? Okay, how about convening public meetings and hearings?

      I don’t normally like to say good things about Hillary Clinton, but when she was sitting in the utterly-symbolic and utterly-powerless role of First Lady, she, with the blessing of her husband, did more to advance discussion of these issues than either of you have ever done. If all you ever do is “sit on the edge of the bed and tell us how good it’s going to be,” well, that will never produce a baby.

    A New Theory About Bloomberg’s Grand Strategy

    Watching Bloomberg’s many long TV ads running out here in expensive California right now (nationwide Bloomberg’s ad buys have now reached $200 million—more than the rest of the Democratic field combined) prompts the thought that Bloomberg is setting himself up to run as an independent this year, especially if Sanders is the nominee. There’s this very interesting little detail in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal article about his campaign:

    The campaign paid as much as double the going rate for staff and promised jobs to workers through November, whether or not Mr. Bloomberg stays in the race. The candidate, who is funding his run entirely by himself, now has 1,000 campaign staffers.

    If you’ve seen any of Bloomberg’s ads, they are sustained attacks on Trump, which look like general election ads. He doesn’t mention he is a Democrat. He may yet attack Sanders directly before Super Tuesday, especially if Sanders wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, but I am sure his thinking runs like this: Sanders (or Warren) would be a landslide loser to Trump, so it might well be possible for a well-funded independent to siphon up enough votes from disaffected Democrats, independents, and other reluctant Trump voters to win a close three-way race. Bloomberg has the resources to outspend Trump.

      Bloomberg knows he will not be elected President in 2020. The closest he’ll get is the Dem nomination and that will happen ONLY if the Democrats lose their minds totally and let him buy it.

      If Bloomberg runs as an Independent in the general, he would only be doing it to block President Trump from winning the electoral vote. And it doesn’t take much to perform a block.

      There are many examples but my favorite is Carter v Ford in 1976. A switch of only 3,687 votes in Hawaii and 5,559 votes in Ohio from Carter to Ford would have resulted in Ford winning the election with 270 electoral votes.

      This election won’t be that close. President Trump will carry ten more states than he did in 2016 and win in an overwhelming electoral landslide.

        One, who said he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, and doesn’t want to vote for him in 2020, nevertheless will vote for Trump, rather than Sanders, Warren or Bloomberg.

          I didn’t know I had a premise. My point was this: If Bloomberg enters the general election campaign as an independent, he’s not in it to win it but to be a spoiler. Past races have shown that it takes only a handful of votes in a few select precincts to flip a state from the Republican column to the Dem column and vice versa.

          Personally, I don’t think it will matter because President Trump will have more than enough of states in his column to win easily.

      The things which made him rich … are also among the reasons why he got elected.

      For instance, he took his copy of The Art of the Deal and told his negotiators to read it before they sat down to diplomatic discussions. Because of his past business experience, he knows how to do things(!) that “professional politicians” simply aren’t qualified to do – even though it is their job to do it.

      So the strategy is to win the Never-Trumper Independent and Republican vote and the disaffected Democrat vote to gain a plurality of votes in the necessary states to win election, a la Lincoln in 1860. I think Bloomburg wildly overestimates the number of NTs out there, especially ones willing to vote for a gun-grabbing bazillioniare. And the power of advertising to sway the undecided.
