The mob did not win! This is how the supposedly conservative FoxNews celebrated the supposed defeat of a supposed mob. See for yourself:
FoxNews finally showed its true face during the election steal when it declared that Trump had lost the election long before any evidence in support of this thesis materialized. It is now abundantly clear that with a few exceptions (notably Tucker Carlson), FoxNews is very much on the same page as CNN and the rest of them. So what just happened and what is taking place now?
US Americans have been brainwashed into calling things they don’t like, or don’t understand, as “Socialist” or even “Marxist”. The sad reality is that most US Americans sincerely believe that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Bernie Sanders are “socialists”, and when they see modern movies ridiculously filled with “minorities” and gender fluid freaks – this is a case of “cultural Marxism” (a totally meaningless term, by the way!). This is all utter nonsense, neither Marxism nor Socialism have anything to do with BLM, Antifa, Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer (in fact, Marxism places a premium on real law and order!). I can’t take the time and space here to discuss Marxism, but I do believe that there is one analytical tool which we can borrow from Marxist thought to try to make sense of what just happened in the USA. Let’s begin by asking a simple question:
If “the mob” did not win, who did?
Most certainly not the abstract concept of “law and order”. For one thing, it is now abundantly clear that some cops deliberately let a (rather small) subset of protestors not only across police lines but even inside the Capitol Building itself. That is not exactly law and order, now is it? Furthermore, it is now also clear that Ashli Babbitt was very deliberately shot by an (apparently black) cop who was then quickly hidden away from sight by the authorities. Not exactly law and order either.
Neither did the abstract concept of “democracy” win anything that day. Many protesters were recorded saying that the Capitol building belonged to the people, not to the people working in it on behalf of the people. They are right. But even if we accept the notion that those who entered the building were trespassing, the massive crackdown on free speech which immediately followed the events at the Capitol is a clear sign that “democracy” did not win that day. More about that later.
So who won?
Well, look who is celebrating and who is now demanding that punitive and even repressive measures be taken against Trump supporters:
- The Democrats
- The united legacy corporate ziomedia
- The letter soup agencies and their top officials
- Most of the GOP leaders
- The War Lobby (including lots of ex Cold Warriors)
- Big Money (MIC, Oil, Pharma, Jails and Prisons, etc.)
- The Israel Lobby (especially the ADL – see here and here)
- The Russia-hating Lobby
- The many freaks of nature leading various “minorities”
- Big Tech megacorporations a la Google and Amazon
The list is longer, of course, and it includes pretty much all the folks afflicted with the now famous Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
Our list looks like a cocktail of very different actors, but is that really the case?
I submit that if we look closely at this list of possible “winners” we can quickly see that we are dealing with a single social category/group whose “diversity” is only apparent. Here is what all these groups have in common:
- They are numerically small, definitely a minority
- They are very wealthy
- They are very close to the real centers of power
- They share the same narcissistic (Neocon) ideology of self-worship
- They are driven by the same hate-based ideology of revenge
- They don’t care about the people of the USA
- They want to dismantle the US Constitutional order
On the basis of these common characteristics, I believe that we can speak about a social class united by a common ideology.
Now, of course, in the plutocratic oligarchy (which the United States in reality is), the notion of “class” has been declared heretical and it has been replaced by identity politics – the best way for a ruling class to a) hide behind a fake illusion of pluralism and b) to divide the people and rule over them.
I have already written about what I consider to be a US version of the Soviet Nomenklatura, a special ruling class which was official in the (comparatively much more honest) Soviet system but which is always hidden from sight by the rulers of the United States.
The actual word we use are not that important: Nomenklatura, class, caste, establishment, powers that be, deep state, etc. – they all approximate the reality of a small gang of self-declared “elites” (as opposed to the “deplorables”) ruling with total impunity and no checks and balances mitigating their de facto dictatorship. Some well-intentioned people began speaking about the “1%” – which is not bad, even if the actual figure is even smaller than just one percent. Others used “Wall Street” (as in the “occupy WS” movement), again – not a bad attempt to describe the problem. Whatever the terms you chose, what is certain is that this entity has what Marx would call a “class consciousness” which produces a single “class ideology” characterized by an extremely strong sense of “us versus them”.
By the way, while I disagree with any notion that the US Nomenklatura is Marxist or Socialist in any way, I very much agree that these “elites” are displaying an ideological zeal very similar to what Trotskysts or Nazis typically exhibit, especially when confronted with the “deplorables” or, like FoxNews says, the “mob” (the Polish word “bydło” – cattle – very accurately renders this contempt for the masses).
In fact, they see us all as their “class enemy”. And they are quite correct, by the way.
Their ideology is messianic, racist, violent and hate filled while the members of this US Nomenklatura see themselves as the cream of the crop, the “chosen people”, whose “destiny” is to rule over the “dark and primitive” “mob”.
This contempt for the “mob” is something which self-described “liberals” always try to conceal, but which always comes out, be it in 1917 Russia or in 2021 USA. There is a weird logic to this, by the way. It goes something like this: “we are clearly superior to the plebes, yet these plebes seem to reject that notion, these plebes are therefore a “dark mob” which absolutely needs to be strictly ruled by us”. The underlying assumption is that plebes are dangerous, they can always riot and threaten “us”. Hence the need for a police state. QED.
We all remember how the Clinton gang was mega-super-sure that Hillary would easily defeat Trump. And just to make darn sure that the US “plebes” don’t do anything stupid, the US legacy corporate ziomedia engaged in probably the most hysterical candidate bashing propaganda operation in history only to find out that the “deplorables” did not vote as they were told to, they voted for “Trump The New Hitler” instead.
What a truly unforgivable affront of these serfs against the masters which God, or Manifest Destiny, placed above them!
And just as their pseudo-liberal colleagues from the past, the US liberals decided that this vote was a slap in their face which, if course, is quite correct (I still believe that most votes for Trump where not votes for Trump, but votes against Hillary; it was, so to speak, a gigantic “f**k you!” from the revolting serfs against their masters. And class consciousness told the US Nomenklatura that this was an anti-masters pogrom, a US “Jacquerie” if you wish. This “revolt of the serfs” had to be put down, immediately, and it was: Trump caved to the Neocons in less than a month (when he betrayed General Flynn) and ever since the US Nomenklatura has been using Trump as a disposable President who would do all the crazy nonsense imaginable to please Israel, and who would then be disposed off. And yet it is now quite clear that the US “deplorables” voted for the “wrong” candidate again! Hence the need for a (very poorly concealed) “election steal” followed by a “test of loyalty” (you better side with us, or else…) which eventually resulted in the situation we have today.
What is that situation exactly?
Simply put, this time the US Nomenklatura has truly achieved total power. Not only do they control all three of the official branches of government, they now also fully control the 4th one, the “media space”, courtesy of the US tech giants which now are openly silencing anybody who disagrees with the One And Only Official Truth As Represented By The Propaganda Outlets. This is the very first time in recent US history that a small cabal of “deep insiders” have achieved such total control of all the real instruments of power. The bad news is that they know that they are a small minority and they realize that they need to act fast to secure their hold on power. But for that they needed a pretext.
It is hardly surprising that after successfully pulling off the 9/11 false flag operation, the US Nomenklatura had no problems whatsoever pulling off the “Capitol” false flag.
Think about it: the legally organized and scheduled protest of Trump supporters was announced at least a week before it had to take place. How hard was it for those in charge of security to make sure that the protesters stay in one specific location? At the very least, those in charge of security could have done what Lukashenko eventually did in Mink: place military and police forces around all the important symbolic buildings and monuments and say “you are welcome to protest, but don’t even think of trying to take over any government property” (that approach worked much better than beating up protesters, which Lukashenko initially had tried). Yet what we saw was the exact opposite: in DC protesters were invited across police lines by cops. Not only that, but even those protesters which did enter the Capitol were, apparently, not violent enough, so it had to be one of the cops to shoot an unarmed and clearly none-dangerous woman, thereby providing the “sacrificial victim” needed to justify the hysterics about “violence” and “rule of law”.
And the worst part is that it worked, even Trump ended up condemning the “violence” and denouncing those who, according to Trump, did not represent the people.
The hard truth is much simpler: the “stop the steal” protestors did not commit any real violence! Yes, they broke some furniture, had some fights with cops (who initially were inviting people in, only to then violently turn against them with batons, pepper sprays and flash-bang grenades). Some reports say that one cop was hit by a fire extinguisher. If true, that would be a case of assault with a deadly weapon (under US law any object capable of being used to kill can be considered a deadly weapon when used for that purpose). But considering the nonstop hysteria about guns, the NRA and “armed militias”, this was clearly not a planned murder. Finally, a few people died, apparently from natural causes, possibly made worse by the people trampling over each other. In other words, the Trump supporters did not kill anybody deliberately, at most they can be accused of creating the circumstances which resulted in manslaughter. That was not murder. Not even close. Want to see what a planned murder looks like? Just look at the footage of the Ashli Babbitt murder by some kind of armed official. That is real murder, and it was committed by a armed official. So which side is most guilty of violating laws and regulations?
Furthermore, no moral value can be respected unless it is universally and equally applied. Which, considering that the US deep state has engaged in a full year of wanton mass violence against hundreds innocent US citizens makes it unbelievably hypocritical for the US liberals to denounce “the mob” now. Frankly, the way I see it, all the US liberals should now “take a knee” before the pro-Trump protestors and declare that this was a “mostly peaceful” event which, objectively speaking, it was.
Won’t happen. I know.
What will happen next is going to be a vicious crackdown on free speech in all its forms. In fact, and just to use a Marxist notion, what comes next is class warfare.
We have all seen Pelosi and the rest of them demanding that Trump either be removed by Pence and the Cabinet (25th A.), or they will unleash another impeachment. First, if impeached, Trump won’t be able to run in 2024 (which the liberals fully realize is a major risk for them). But even more important, is to humiliate him, make him pay, show him once and for all “who is boss”! These people thrive on revenge and victory is never enough to appease them, they simply hate anybody who dares oppose them and they want to make an example of any and every serf who dares to disobey them. That is why they always send “messages”, no matter how inchoate: they want to bully all the deplorables on the planet into total subservience.
But they won’t stop with just Trump. Oh no! They will also go after all those serfs who dared defy this Nomenklatura and who objected to the wholesale repudiation of the US Constitution. For example, iIn a truly Orwellian move, the NY State Bar now wants to disbar Giuliani for acting as Trump’s lawyer (not a joke, check here). Which, considering that Trump already lost several lawyers to such tactics should not come as a surprise to anybody: apparently, in the “new 2021 Woke-USA”, some are more entitled to legal representation than others.
Don’t expect the ACLU to protest, by the way – equal protection under the law is not a topic of interest to them.
Here are a few screenshots take off their website, so see for yourself.
Clearly, the priority for the folks at the ACLU is to destroy Trump and anybody daring to take up his defense.
One one hand, this is truly an absolute disaster, because when the US ruling Nomenklatura agrees to drop any past pretenses of objectivity, or even decency, things will definitely get ugly. On the other hand, however, this immense “coming out” of the US Nomenklatura is, of course, unsustainable (just look at history, every time these folks thought that they had crushed the “plebes”, the latter ended up rising and showing their supposed “masters” to the door; this will happen here too).
Last, but not least, let’s keep another crucial thing in mind: even if you absolutely hate Trump, you really should realize that it is not just “the vote” which was stolen, it was the entire US Constitutional order. While we often focus on the SCOTUS, we should not remember the many lower courts which showed a total absence of courage or dignity and which caved in to the hysterical demands of the US Nomenklatura. It is impossible to have a country under the rule of law when the courts shy away from their obligation to uphold the said rule of law and, instead, place political expediency above the letter and spirit of the law.
Furthermore, when concepts such as “legal” and “illegal” lose any objective meaning, how can *any* action be considered illegal or punishable?
Here is, just as an example, the Oath of Office taken by all Supreme Court Justices: (emphasis added)
“I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”
And this is what each member of the US Armed Forces swears: (emphasis added)
“I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. (So help me God).”
It does not take a genius to figure out that the SCOTUS is now in the hands of a small cabal of people who clearly are “domestic enemies” of the US Constitution.
Finally, here is what the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence states: (emphasis added)
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
I don’t think that there is any need to further beat this dead horse and I will simply summarize it as so:
The regime which will soon replace the Trump Administration is an illegal occupation government, with strong ties to foreign interests (and I don’t mean China or Russia here!), which all those who served in the US military have taken an oath to oppose; this is precisely the kind of occupation regime which the Founding Fathers foresaw in their Declaration of Independence. Furthermore, the rule of law has clearly collapsed, at least on the federal level, this should give the states more freedom of movement to resist the decrees of this new regime (at least those states still willing and able to resist, I think of TX and FL here). The leaders of this US Nomenklatura understand this, at least on some level, and we should expect no decency from them; neither should we expect any mercy. Revenge is what fuels these ideology and hate-filled people who loathe and fear all the rest of humanity because nobody is willing to worship them as our “lords and masters”. But this is also the beginning of their end.
Conclusion: now we are all Palestinians!
True, no “mob” won on the Capitol, unless we refer to the (disgraced, hated and useless) Congress as “the mob”. And, of course, neither did “the people” or the protesters. The only real winner in this entire operation was the US deep state and the US Nomenklatura. But they did not win any war, only the opening battle of a war which will be much longer than what they imagine in their ignorance.
I have said it many times, Trump really destroyed the USA externally, in terms of world politics. The Dems have done the same thing, only internally. For example, Trump is the one who most arrogantly ignored the rule of law in international affairs, but it was the Dems who destroyed the rule of law inside the USA. It was Trump who with his antics and narcissistic threats urbi et orbi who destroyed any credibility left for the USA as a country (or even of the the AngloZionist Empire as a whole), but it was the Dems who really decided to sabotage the very political system which allowed them to seize power in the first place.
What comes next is the illegal rule of an illegitimate regime which came to power by violence (BLM, Antifa, Capitol false flag). This will be a Soviet-style gerontocracy with senile figureheads pretending to be in power (think Biden vs Chernenko here). Looking at the old, Obama-era, names which are circulated now for future Cabinet positions, we can bet on two things: the new rulers will be as evil as they will be grossly incompetent, mostly due to their crass lack of education (even Nuland and Psaki are back, it appears!). The Biden admin will be similar to the rule of Kerensky in “democratic” Russia: chaos, violence, lots and lots of speeches and total social and economic chaos. The next crucial, and even frightening, question now is: what will replace this US version of a Kerensky regime?
It is way too early to reply to this question, but we should at least begin to think about it, lest we be completely caught off guard.
But until then, “domestic terrorism” will, once again, become the boogeyman we will be told to fear. And, as all good boys and girls know, the best way to deal with such a horrible “domestic terrorism” threat is to dismantle the First and Second Amendments of the Constitution. Having corrupt kangaroo courts on all levels, from the small claims level to the Supreme court, will greatly help in this endeavor. Of course, there will be resistance from the deplorables who still love their country and their Constitution.
But no matter how long this takes (might be decades) and how violent this confrontation becomes (and, it will, if only because the regime vitally needs more false flags to survive!), what will happen with this occupation regime is what happened to all of them throughout history (could that be the reason why history is not taught anymore?).
As the Russian poet and bard, Vladimir Vissotski, wrote “it is impossible to trample upon souls with boots” (сапогами не вытоптать душу). Now we are all Palestinians. And we, like they, will win!
