Once upon a time, if you voted against someone like Obama or Tony Blair in Britain, you simply accepted your loss and moved on. Those days are indeed properly for story books which begin – “Once Upon a Time.” This is not something which is unique to Britain. We are beginning to see the collapse of civilization which will only end in separatist movements and violence.
People are no longer willing to accept democracy. If they lose, they are turning much more violent demanding their way or no way. Pro-BREXIT British MPs had to be escorted to Parliament by police to protect them from violence. They will have to take up a vote on Monday. Despite the fact that the people voted for BREXIT, the opposition REFUSES to accept that decision.
We are witnessing plain intolerance rising on a massive scale. Our computer has been predicting that this wave would be a wave of sharply rising civil unrest. I am not trying to tout how great our computer has been in forecasting such things. I am concerned that it seems to be always spot on. Democracy is dead.
We have protests rising around the globe against the status quo. It is both sides of the political issues. In Maryland there was a sign posted that said “Hey Liberals Better get you guns if you try to impeach President Trump.” The computer has been projecting that the 2020 elections will be the most violent since the 1960s.
There is simply a real hatred that is brewing and like the genie in a bottle, there is no way to put it all back. This simply has to play itself out and it will NOT END WELL!!! Neither side is going to convince the other that their way of thinking should prevail.
The very purpose of civilization is when everyone comes together to produce a society that is greater than the sum of the individuals. We have lost that very purpose. I honestly do not know what the future will bring after 2032. But there will have to be a lot of blood spilled before there will ever be any resolution. The hatred is far too great to overcome.
Antifa will use the 2020 election as a call to arms…literally. They have spent several years probing on what they can get away with, and it has been considerable …
A Civil War is coming, the progressives have gone to far …
The Democrat Party has made a fateful decision. They’ve decided to safeguard all that is left of their power and the progressive movement they have worshiped at the cost of the existence of the nation they have sworn an oath to preserve.
The Democrats, after 160 years, have once again resolved that they will not accept the election of a president decided by a legal and Constitutional process. Their crusade to oust our president started in 2016 and will probably climax in 2020. This time they will not accept separation, only control…a true civil war!
Sixties flower children finally took over the Democrat Party, they sought not to create a more perfect union, but to destroy it
Many of us saw that it would eventually come to this. And it is now here. The party of love and peace is now the party of war, hate, conformity and subservience. If you wear a MAGA hat, they no longer accord you a flower, but deliver spittle. If Trump removes troops from zones of endless warfare between followers of the ‘religion of peace’, they no longer applaud, but show contempt. Endless wars serve their purpose. MAGA hats do not. If you speak out against their narrative, they attempt to shut you down. To them, the Constitution is a constant irritant.
A rock musician of the sixties put it well. “In the sixties, we thought we could change the world. In the seventies, we found we couldn’t even change ourselves, so we went for the money.”
The money has now found a voracious partner…power.
When the sixties flower children finally took over the Democrat Party, the intention, as it turned out, was never to offer a solution to our social and domestic problems, but to destroy everything in their path to show and ‘prove’ to the world that our system does not work. They sought not to create a more perfect union, but to destroy it. In other words, establish change by creating chaos, blame others, and then demand a solution that they will dictate.
Almost every major city run by Democrats is in shambles either by crime or blight, or both
Almost every major city run by Democrats is in shambles either by crime or blight, or both. Our culture has deteriorated to a point where nearly every form of degeneracy is now considered normal and healthy. Our Judeo-Christian culture is looked upon with disfavor and secular, godless humanism with approval. Unchecked, uncontrolled migration has given us disease, crime, near bankrupt cities, voter fraud in the millions, terrorists waiting for orders, and a dilution of our culture only a sinister group could have thought of.
The news corporations no longer deliver news, but pure propaganda. They have abandoned their charge, taken sides and are determined to see the nation’s transformation to its conclusion.
With the help of Marxist teachers and educators, our education system is now more reminiscent of re-education camps than centers of learning. It has become so widespread that most children leave home as innocent models of their parents’ values and return as belligerent little know-it-alls that defy every decent ethic they were taught at home. When asked a question they drone out lines of prepared elocution.
Do not be deceived, they are not being taught Progressivism, or Democratic Socialism, and certainly not traditional liberalism. They are being taught full-on Marxist Communism with a Fascist twist.
When President Trump wins re-election, I predict the Left will go totally unhinged
The big question is…now what? The Democrats know they have a very slim chance of winning in 2020, so they and their partners in the media are pulling out all the stops. They will destroy this president any way they can. Trump is right, they don’t want him, they want us, and he is in the way.
When President Trump wins re-election, I predict the Left will go totally unhinged. They will neither accept it nor allow it. It will make no difference if Trump should win the popular vote. If Trump wins only the Electoral College, there will be an outrage heard round the world and…There Will Be Blood, especially in the big Democrat cities. They will run rough shod, destroying everything they can find. The media will feed the violence and continue their narrative that the racist has again won the White House, their rampage justified.
Antifa will use the election as a call to arms…literally. They have spent several years probing on what they can get away with, and it has been considerable.
Preserve the Union against a demonic domestic enemy long asking for their comeuppance
If Trump should lose, the Right will never believe that he lost fair and square. A strong suspicion of voter fraud and corruption will take hold, feeding millions with a sense of finally needing to preserve the Union against a demonic domestic enemy long asking for their comeuppance. Their patience at an end. Every action will be met with at least an equal reaction. It could easily snowball to what I fear to predict.
If, before the elections, the Barr and Durham investigations show what many suspect, an attempted coup, organized by the FBI, intelligence services, and others from the highest levels of government, the indictments will begin descending. The initial silence from these politician/deep-state-criminals will be deafening. The next sounds heard will either be the reading of their rights, the he-made-me-do-it finger pointing, or the quick glancing toward their blind, ignorant, well-indoctrinated followers the order…Charge! We pray everyone will come to their senses.
When there is nothing left to talk about, it becomes a case of doing rather than saying.
Ray DiLorenzo — Bio and Archives | Comments
Ray DiLorenzo is a career pilot having retired after 22 years as a contract fire pilot with the California Department of Forestry (Cal-Fire). He is presently affiliated with Stand Up America founded by Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret).
The Progressive party, old Democrat party, is really nothing more than a party based on the delusions of Karl Marx. Sadly our education system has totally failed us and is now promoting a from of the political system that has destroyed countries and killed in one form or another well over 100 million people since the death of Karl Marx in 1883, 136 years ago. Consider that, that is well over 700,000 people killed per year on average.
There is no way that Marx’s system can work as it goes against human nature! Yet the “best and the Brightest” continue to try to make the unworkable work and we follow them time after time. This time the attempt will be much worse as there are way to many nuclear weapons out they and the world is being mushed into war by radial agendas.
Wake up people there is no such thing as a free lunch!
Details are very light; however, an armed man wearing body armor was arrested shortly before President Trump arrived at the American Airlines arena in Dallas Texas.
According to NBC5 Dallas:
Dallas police arrested the man while he was wearing a helmet, a vest and a backpack. Officers confiscated a gun, a breathing mask and an aerosol can. The man, who has not been identified, was arrested near counter-protestors. (link)
According to additional reporting the gunman was located with of a group of protesters against the U.S. withdrawal from Syria.
Comrade Petsche and his hit Squad ….
A simplified time line (see previous posts here for the complete time line) of the now recognized criminal activities of Comrade Petsche:
Aug. 20, 2019: At a council meeting, Matty announces that the city has been served with a subpoena related to a “criminal investigation” of USA Roofing and its contracts for municipal jobs. Petsche said there is no criminal investigation, and to say so is to “slander my good name.”
Sept. 3, 2019: Council discusses possibly impeaching Petsche for allegedly violating state code and the city charter, due to USA Roofing’s contracts for city work.
Sept. 17, 2019: Councilwoman Kim Veras asks Petsche to resign for his sake and the sake of the city. Petsche reads a statement, saying council is overreacting by considering impeachment. Council gives Petsche’s attorney until Sept. 25 to respond to Veras’ request that Petsche resign.
Sept. 25, 2019: Petsche’s attorney, Peter Pattakos, says Petsche will not resign and will fight any attempt to remove him from office. Pattakos says Petsche did nothing wrong.
Oct. 15, 2019: Brecksville’s city council was told at the end of normal business that Council person Jack Petsche’s case with the state ethics committee had been decided and send to the Cuyahoga county prosecutor for action.
The following Image was taken by me while Comrade Petsche was being informed of the result of the states ethics committee review.
In summary this is what the council was told at the meeting last night (October 15, 2019 at around 2030).
1) The Ohio State Bar Association Ethics Committee found that Comrade Petsche had in fact committed ethics violations.
2) The Ethics Committee had also determined that of the three options available to them they selected the most serious of the three. Which were in order of least to worst: One, reprimand, Two negotiated settlement and, Three, criminal referral.
3) The details are not available since this is now a criminal investigation and its in the hands of the County prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley.
Comrade Petsche is sadly an extremely arrogant person that is full of himself, as we use to say, since from the beginning of this unfortunate situation it was always in Comrade Petsche’s power to resolve the situation and prevent this from happening to him. But the radial progressive wing of the Democrat party has turned into hard core Marxists and they are all very sure of themselves to the point that that can’t even conceive that they have done anything wrong. They are after all the “Best and the Brightest” and above the common man/woman. Unfortunately, being the “Best and the Brightest” doesn’t mean that you are right, in fact it can also mean that you are blind to the realities of society and the world we live in.
Remember it was the “Best and the Brightest” that gave us Vietnam and 58,272 American combat deaths and 303,644 wounded in action many of those died later from PTSD!
Comrade Petsche must have known that what he did was wrong but never-the-less he has continued to unjustly malign one of the best mayors ever in Cuyahoga county — see this recent example from his social media account below. Also just as a reminder, Comrade Petsche said at one of the previous Council discussion over his reprehensible conduct that if the Ethics committee ruled against him he would resign from Council. Well last night he found out that they did rule against him but he did not resign his position. So he is not a man of his word either!
This post is so full of arrogance that its actually embarrassing. Would you really want this person or the rest of his squad anywhere near the rains of power in one of the best run cities in the State?

China is NOT on board with this nonsense of climate change caused by humans. The South China Morning Post has reported that their scientists have traced their civilization and its rise and fall to the energy output of the sun. Simply put, when the climate warms, civilization flourishes. When it turns cold, we isolate ourselves and civilization contracts.
China will take up the crown of the financial capital of the world because the West is just going insane with socialism and using climate as the excuse to seize power and wealth.
I have stated many times that when it is beneficial to come together, civilization expands because there is a synergy that rises that is greater than the sum of the parts. When civilization becomes corrupt and it feeds upon one class for the benefit of another, the very PURPOSE of coming together no longer makes sense and you witness this throughout separatists movements, revolutions, and civil war.
