There is a strong anti-China current being promoted in right-wing circles and some neo-liberal ones in light of the coronavirus epidemic.

These forces are seeking to redirect real criticisms of globalization – deindustrialization, stolen intellectual property, and trade deficits – and utilize them for support for regime change operations and possibly even war against China for the financial self-interest of a few American oligarchs. It’s similar to how anti-immigration sentiment was swerved into concerns about Islam’s illiberalism in hopes of advancing Israeli interests in Europe and promoting neo-conservative wars in America.

While the Trump government’s tariffs are a welcome policy in the national interest, it also refuses to fix any of the domestic problems that allow for China to always win due to the plutocratic stranglehold American capitalists have on the US government.

The US elite is divided on China. On the one hand, there is a steadily weakening wing that seeks to continue America’s relationship with the Asian superpower in hopes of keeping a foot in the door and gradually liberalizing it.

On the other side of the debate, there are figures like George Soros, Peter Thiel, and disgraced and exiled billionaire criminal Guo Wengui who see the Chinese pseudo-National Socialist system as antifragile in the face of the passive liberal subversion that helped take down the Soviet Union.

Neither Soros, Thiel, Trump or Wengui are interested in combating globalization, but only in destroying what they perceive to be a barrier to it. For Soros, he shrouds his personal financial interest thwarted by the Chinese state in the language of “human rights” familiar to the liberal-left. Thiel has tapped a number of “alt” right-wing personalities and phony populists to try and construct a civilizational and even implicitly racial clash narrative to support his business interests in India and America. Wengui’s weapon has been Steve Bannon, who has been making his appeal to whoever will have him as a neo-con jingo, reviving silly language about “liberating” the Chinese people even though we Americans have no freedom ourselves.

Anti-China? Yes. Pro-America? No.

It’s easy to mistake the discourse of China hawks for sincere patriotism. While Donald Trump ran on a platform of bringing American industry home, the Trump administration’s actual policies in recent years have not achieved this.

The Chinese government’s international message, that its nationalistic command economy provides for superior development in comparison to liberal-capitalism, appears self-evidently true. This is a problem for American plutocracy, which tells its own citizens and those of other nations that in fact free trade and liberalization are the path to prosperity.

Rather than copying what works for the Chinese economic model (nationalizing industry, strong regulations against foreign influence, etc), American capital and the Trump administration have worked to win over Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is an advocate for mass privatization, weakening the state, and deregulation, a strategy the phony nationalist refers to as “minimum government, maximum governance.”

In Asia, economic prosperity and stable growth is more compelling than military power, and America’s elites have begun making overtures towards India in hopes of creating a counter-weight to China.

Last year, the US-India Strategic and Partnership Forum announced that 200 American manufacturers were interested in moving their supply chains from China to India, not America. The big barrier appears to be India’s low quality infrastructure and the lack of an existing free trade agreement with the US.

According to reports in Hindu press from two months ago, the Trump administration has gone into talks with the Modi government to develop a new free trade agreement that will produce $500 billion in trade between the US and India. When all these pieces are put together, the end-result will be that the US’ economically disastrous trade deficit with China will simply be shifted to benefit India.

India’s Modi is eager to turn India into a full-blown satellite of the United States. The mass privatization of the country after the fall of the Soviet Union has not significantly bettered the average Indians life and his nation is unstable and dysfunctional. The Belt and Road Initiative threatens to spread the Chinese Corporatist development model all around nations Indian oligarchs see as being rivals or subjects: Pakistan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal, etc.

The Belt and Road Initiative is also an existential threat to international Jewish finance. Nations across Asia, Africa, Russia and Europe have signed on or expressed interest in the BRI due to its exclusive focus on real assets and Keynesian infrastructuve-led growth, as opposed to neo-liberal models that impose the primacy of financial “assets” and selling off your country to international corporations.

India has refused to join the BRI, but the nations around it are all on board. If successful, the Belt and Road Initiative will create a counter-weight to Manhattan high-finance, and thus a potential economic partner for nations uncomfortable with the cosmopolitan, hedonistic Jewish values Washington demands its subjects take up in the name of “democracy.”

Donald Trump is trying to curtail the potential liberation of these nation’s from Wall Streets cultural and economic influence by creating the Blue Dot Network, or U.S. Free and Open Indo-Pacific Strategy (FOIP), which so far only has Australia, Japan, India and America as signatories.

Safe to say, this pact will require more foreign aid and trade deficits, and nothing that will financially benefit the people of America. A national industrial policy that looks to overturn neo-liberal reforms that have turned our economy into an overfinancialized basket case is the medicine we need. Instead, we are being drafted to fight a war to save an increasingly dysfunctional and discredited economic model that benefits only a few.

George Soros: The Open Society Against China

The international Jew George Soros has made much of his fortune collapsing the Bank of England and causing the Asian financial crisis. Most Western countries fear him due to his economic power, which he uses passively through speculative attacks or directly when he finances private coups against governments that defy him, known as “color revolutions.”

Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn’s largest hospital, is non-sectarian and supposed to serve all New Yorkers equally regardless of race. According to new reports, this is about to change.

The potential ventilator shortage in COVID-19 ridden New York has led to hospitals across the city to begin debating rationing health care for those who stop breathing or fall into cardiac arrest. While no official protocols are in place, it has been reported that doctors are already informally implementing do-not-resuscitate orders against the wishes of sick patients in order to more efficiently use ventilators.

At Maimonides, the Jews-only ambulance service Hatzalah has somehow gotten its hands on 50 ventilators and donated them to the Borough Park hospital. This donation comes with strings attached: Jews will get priority access, and in cases where an elderly Jewish patient is far gone and a young Gentile patient could be saved, the Jew must keep his ventilator indefinitely.

According to Hatzalah, it is against the Jewish religion to refuse patients care based on age or co-morbidities. This is by no means unique to Jews, as the Catholic Church and various other religious institutions believe the exact same thing. Once again, religion is being used to mask racial privilege.

The Jewish community’s behavior during this pandemic has been atrocious. A recent police raid on a warehouse belonging to Baruch Feldheim uncovered a massive stockpile of desperately needed medical supplies. Feldheim was selling struggling hospitals N95 masks at a 700% markup, revealing a callous willingness to profit from misery and death.

While right-wing pundits are comfortably spreading rumors that Chinese agents are spreading the virus across on purpose, and the FBI and Jewish leaders have promoted the hoax that racist white men are infecting Jews on purpose, neither side is keen to mention that in actuality it is Jews who have become overrepresented as vectors of COVID-19. According to Deborah Lipstadt, Jews are unwilling to follow state bans on large gatherings that endanger them and the people around them due to the “Holocaust.” Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey has been forced to engage in mass arrests and ticketing to try and discourage the Jews of Lakewood, New Jersey from flagrantly violating his executive order forbiding large public gatherings.

Seeing how the supply of everything from ambulances to ventilators is being stressed by the sudden rush of patients, it would be in the interest of the citizens of New York for Governor Andrew Cuomo to take over Hatzalah and the stockpile of supplies in the hands of local Jewish gangsters to be utilized based on medical need, rather than race or profit.

As COVID-19 begin to mount, American workers are deciding to fight back.

Jeff Bezos, who is worth $100 billion dollars, has capitalized on the unfair advantage his company has now that many states have forced non-essential brick and mortar shops to close down.

Amazon has been on a massive hiring spree, packing thousands of new workers into its unsanitary and cramped warehouses. The drastic increase in demand and desire for pandemic profiteering has led to employees even in warehouses with confirmed COVID-19 cases to push through physically taxing, poorly compensated, longer than usual shifts. Individual workers must touch countless packages every day, while not being granted sufficient gear and precautionary measures that could slow efficiency. Health insurance or the hazard pay they deserve is off the table. This is not only dangerous for the workers, but it could spread the virus to customers across our nation as well.

A number of factors have given American workers the confidence to stand up for themselves. It is not easy right now for Amazon to bus in replacements, either temp workers or immigrants. The federal government’s new stimulus bill, while highly flawed and fall of corporate welfare, does provide a decent safety net to those who get laid off. The current freeze on globalism has significantly weakened the power of capital and made it vulnerable to labor resistance.

Amazon began as an online book dealer that later morphed into a multi-national monopoly with 800,000 employees. Amazon is able to retain its power by buying out competitors, subjecting workers to third world conditions and few-to-no benefits, and utilizes a number of loopholes to pay 1.2% of its $14 billion in income on federal taxes, despite the massive public infrastructure burden Amazon’s business model causes.

Whatever you think you’re saving when you shop at Amazon you end up paying for in income taxes to subsidize Jeff Bezos’ work force and infrastructure problems. Amazon workers are disproportionately more likely to need food stamps, welfare, medicaid and other social services. In Seattle, Amazon’s presence has caused massive problems with traffic and the cost of housing to double in six years, In Virginia, the opening of Amazon’s headquarters required massive projects to upgrade roads to accommodate a rush of new people.

Bezos does not do anything of social value with the personal wealth and power he has accumulated. The unlimited selection of books that put Amazon on the map is now, after crushing competitors, being drastically limited to censor political and historic books Jewish organizations and Bezos do not want the public to be able to read. Amazon’s Smiles program is managed by anti-white and anti-working class extremists at the Southern Poverty Law Center. A new series produced by his company, “Hunters,” is pro-“antifa,” anti-white snuff porn that celebrates the grotesque and sadistic murder of German “Nazis” explicitly understood to be placeholders for ordinary white people. The Washington Post, a once authoritative newspaper, has been transformed into a print version of the Huffington Post under his command.

Bezos funds open borders programs and $10 billion dollars in grants to push green austerity. This may shield him from full-throated opposition from the liberal-left, but why doesn’t he just pay his taxes and provide his workers with health care, basic labor rights, and a living wage instead?

Instead, Amazon leads the corporate world in ruthless exploitation. Jessica Bruder’s book, Nomadland, notes that Amazon encourages the practice of “Workamping” – poor and often older white people who are forced to move into mobile homes or to live in their car and travel across the country looking for temporary jobs just to survive. One in four people in this tragic subculture work for Amazon, which also receives a corporate tax-subsidy for employing them due to their age. The physical and repetitive nature of the high pace work takes a toll on these workers, and the book describes how Amazon has painkiller dispensaries on walls at the job site for the precariously employed laborers to use.

Now is the time for Bezos to pay. The demands put forward by the striking workers: double hazard pay, paid sick leave, and more breaks, are common sense. Consumers, frightened by the prospect of the pandemic spreading, are already pressuring their government to shut down warehouses that have had infectious outbreaks but Amazon demanded stay open.

It is in times of crisis that we appreciate the true value of work. It’s time to compensate it, whether it’s “contractors” in the gig economy or a slave for. It is worms like Jeff Bezos whose multi-national presence and international supply chains have enabled the spread of the globalist virus and caused chronic shortages through deindustrialization. It’s time for neo-liberal plutocrats be forced to pay for the mess and misery they have caused.

Another 832 people died from coronavirus in Italy today. The country’s fatalities have passed 10,000. Some believe this number is a massive undercount and the number of deaths could be as high as 50,000.

But an equally important story is how the liberal powers, particularly the European Union and NATO, have reacted to Italy’s desperate cries for help.

Israel, a dangerous rogue nation Italian conservatives have been trying to sell as an “alliance” worth deepening, has mobilized to provide emergency support to the devastated city of Milan. The catch? The “solidarity” is only for Jews.

As for NATO ally Turkey, the country’s firms have announced that they have the ability to produce 50 million face masks in a week, which are in chronic short supply in Italy’s hardest hit regions. Yet, in what can only be described as an act of subhumanity, the Turkish government went out of its way to maliciously confiscate 200,000 masks purchased by Italy in early March, with no refund.

The various “human rights” NGOs that serve as subversive tentacles for US/Brussels soft power are also working hard, but again, Italians are an afterthought. Dozens of plutocrat-funded “Italian” organizations are calling for the evacuation of illegal immigrants from “hotspots,” and for them to be released from detention to be spread out across the country. Meanwhile, ordinary Italians in the north and center of the country are prohibited from leaving without special permission – who speaks for them?

France and Germany, two of the European Union’s largest manufacturers, have heavily restricted the export of medical supplies. The economic liberalization EU countries must endure to join the bloc has destroyed Italian economic independence due to Germany and France swamping neighboring markets with exports. Lesson learned. 67% of Italians now believe membership in the European Union is useless.

Reconfiguring the Global Order

On the other hand, China has been exemplary in aiding Italy and Europe as a whole. The white noise being produced by angry Washington neo-liberals and neo-conservatives, who claim China and Russia are using humanitarian aid as propaganda (as opposed to what?), is falling on deaf ears.

While Donald Trump bickers with selfish US capitalists to produce life-saving ventilators, Chinese planners for the last week have been busy ratcheting up production to meet the sudden explosion in demand in Italy and beyond. Chinese ventilator factories are now working 24 hours and 7 days a week in hopes of meeting superhuman manufacturing goals, even though this carries the risk of creating another outbreak.

This is only one piece of a bigger relief effort. Aside from tons of supplies, China has also sent Italy its most heroic doctors, many who originally helped contain the virus during the initial outbreak in Wuhan. The Chinese have demonstrated deep respect for Roman civilization, marking every humanitarian aid crate with a quote by Seneca: “We are waves of the same sea, leaves of the same tree, flowers of the same garden.” Various other countries targeted by Washington and its pawns in Brussels for rejecting some or all liberal tenets – Russia, Venezuela, Cuba – have also been generous with Italy, despite being strangled by sanctions themselves.

NATO, Germany and the US have grown defensive and reacted to these gestures by mustering some minor procrastinated support, but no matter what they do next, it’s doubtful they will be able to win back an Italian public growing more self-aware and patriotic beneath the mountains of coffins.

The real rulers of America, like the Jew George Soros, have been working tirelessly to prevent Europe from pursuing its own interests and strengthening relations with China, according to the US government run propaganda outlet Voice of America. While Chinese billionaire turned school teacher Jack Ma has been using his foundation to provide life-or-death coronavirus aid to Europe and Asia, Soros has been using his personal fortune to use the crisis as an opportunity to attack the traditional family. What does Soros have to offer the world other than corrosion of all that is virtuous and good?

When all is said and done, Italy, Serbia, Wisegrad group and others thrown under the bus by the liberal-globalist order should reconsider their geopolitical alliances. To join the “community” of liberal plutocracy, a nation must sacrifice its sovereignty, acquiesce to Jews, accept mass race-replacement and attack its own proud history, while getting nothing in return. Is it worth it?

While China blames the US government for the coronavirus, Jewish organizations and the FBI are busy seeding paranoid hoaxes against their national enemy: politically active white men in America.

According to an FBI report cited by World Jewish Congress head Ronald Lauder, bands of “white nationalists” and “neo-Nazis” are currently roaming the streets of New York City purposely infecting Jewish people, minorities and police officers in a secret plot to spread the modern plague.

Lauder’s outlandish claim dovetails with the leak of a Department of Homeland Security report uploaded by Sharon Weinberger claiming that jokes and memes about coronavirus they have found on 4Chan constitute a credible “bioweapon threat” against Jewish people. The document asserts that white nationalists are planning to spray Jews with their infected saliva and spend time in public with minorities.

There is no evidence that this is happening or ever has happened. It is baseless blood libel against white people intended to hide the failures of these demagogues in the midst of a crisis. The hate crimes against random Asians in the US so far appear to be committed largely by blacks.

Jewish people have been spreading coronavirus among themselves due to their poor hygiene, penchant for international travel, and refusal to follow prescriptions on social distancing. In New Jersey, Jews were arrested in two separate instances for hosting weddings in defiance of temporary laws against large social gatherings. One of the earliest reported contagion ground zeroes in America was a Shabbat dinner. Among the biggest hot spots are Kiryas Joel, New Rochelle, Williamsburg, and various other parts of the northeast with massive Jewish populations.

As for the “intelligence community,” coronavirus is slated to go down as one of the biggest intelligence failures in American history. The Trump administration’s colossal waste of federal resources on the politically motivated hoaxes of “anti-Semitism and “white supremacy” means that the state had better and more accurate information about the latest 4Chan gags than the highly contagious virus.

The number of infected people in New York City continues to surge as the president and his administration doubles down on downplaying the potential human cost. The death toll in Spain and Italy has already surpassed China. The only justification Jews and federal agents have to to try and blame an invisible conspiracy of white men, which the media will gladly run with.

The anti-immigration think-tank VDare’s purchase of a castle in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia last month was reported in local news without much commotion. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a local GOP Congressional candidate, and about a dozen left-wing extremists are trying to change that.

VDare, an organization once considered mainstream, has been under attack by powerful people over its advocacy for immigration control. For this reason, they have had trouble finding stable venues to hold academic conferences and appear to have acquired a new piece of private property to possibly change that.

Recently, Michael Edison Hayden, an anarchist with close ties to “antifa” paramilitary groups, went to the tourist hub to support the organized “opposition” to VDare and stake out their castle.

According to the report, about 12 people, mostly left-wing activists, attended a meeting against VDare. There was one notable exception in the group, Matthew Hahn, a Republican House candidate for West Virginia’s 2nd District, who attended to rub shoulders with communists and anarchists. What would Hahn’s potential constituents think of him plotting with left-wing extremists and the SPLC to do God knows what to a building owned by an organization that shares most of the typical Trump supporter’s cultural views?

Hayden also photographed the VDare property and posted a picture of it in his report. He described the layout of the area, and how its presence on a hill makes it difficult for “anti-racist demonstrators” to “access” it.

According to Hayden, the alt-right has fractured thanks to “antifa” violence, which is presumably laudable in his mind. Whatever the merits of this claim are, this SPLC agent has previously threatened to use his friends and comrades in “antifa” to go after individuals who have political views he doesn’t like.

Soon after posting his article, his large audience of “antifa” followers began to react.

One user using the handle @Braingeesuss asked, “Any idea if they have the money for round the clock security?”

A more menacing reaction that should be construed as a threat was posted by @Dedwrekka : “Aluminum powder mixed with iron oxide.
Or Gallium if you’re trying to be sneaky.” The first sentence is a reference to thermite, an incendiary agent used in deadly arson attacks by terrorist groups around the world.

VDare syndicates Ann Coulter’s column, has been publicly praised by Tucker Carlson, and is read by high-level members of the Trump administration. How far is the SPLC willing to go to prevent private citizens from having private meetings on their newly acquired private property to discuss viewpoints held by half or more of America? We will see as time passes.

In 2020, a socialist is a Republican in a pandemic. A nationalist is a leftist who has suddenly discovered the wisdom of borders and citizenship. Both wings of the money-power vulture and its managerial class chicks have at least temporarily rediscovered the value of the nation, and the power of national collectivism viz-a-viz individualism and cosmopolitanism.

When the White House announced a relief plan to temporarily send every American citizen a subsidy, expand health care and mandates for paid sick leave, I expected a deluge of Jewish media concern trolls: “what about all our illegal immigrants? Why must big business continue to suffer? How are we going to pay for this non-essential stimulus white people might benefit from? Let’s attach an emergency amnesty or else this is racist and can’t be passed!” — distractions that would doom such a bill in Congress. This sentiment shockingly never materialized. If you’re an illegal immigrant, go home and get your government to take care of you.

Ordinary Americans, especially those of European descent who are not allowed community advocates or state protections, have been indefinitely suffering from a myriad of problems on par with coronavirus in our country. The solutions the hedge fund managers, think-tanks, lobbyists and journalists usually present is to exacerbate these problems for their own profit, financial or cultural.

What has changed this time around is that the coronavirus has brought blood to the doors of rich cosmopolitans, who love to travel and go to Shabbat dinners. They’re going to have trouble advocating for their disastrous policies now that we are sharing the consequences together.

The Impossible Becomes Possible

The fact that so few people control so many trillions of dollars on the market in liberal “democracies” around the world means that no amount of federal reserve rate cuts or handouts to banks can alone save the economy. In Canada, the stock market collapse is historic. In Britain, the Pound is in a free fall as international speculators start betting on the US dollar (sorry gold-bugs). The trend in capitalist nations around the world is to lower bank lending rates, which so far has led to short term 1-day rallies that are followed by another dive. What are interest rates going to do after you’ve hit 0%?

The public’s dash for toilet paper, food, water and dollars is partially a product of elite fright — the only thing that really trickles down to workers from the stock market. It’s not just about getting sick, the oligarchs are afraid there will be a slave revolt if a Great Depression tier contraction intersects with many 9/11’s worth of human carnage. Peter Turchin previously predicted that a pandemic or economic meltdown would lead to the collapse of the already fragile neo-liberal order during the 2020s and many laughed.

They’re not laughing now. Suddenly, what Jews like Steven Pinker have held is an “impossible” task — closing borders and stopping immigration — has been made reality overnight in Europe, Canada, and to some degree America.

Now, the GOP has dropped its “socialism vs America” crap to outflank the corporate Democrats from the left and propose drastic state action to prevent electoral slaughter next November. The open borders anti-white left has been shoved out of the way and eliminated from the conversation entirely. Liberal ideologues, whether economic (GOP) or cultural (the “woke” left), have finally shut the hell up so that we can have a serious conversation about our nation, though I suspect they will reboot the white noise machine the second they think the coast is clear.

In Europe, the European Union is doing the bare minimum to help Northern Italy as it is ravaged, raising the question as to what the point of regional integration even is. After initially pledging to sit back and watch Italy financially explode, leaving them with all the downsides of a Euro and none of the ups, it seems Christine Lagarde has now changed her mind as her owners started to taste the backwash. But nations are still turtling up on a very primal level. The Schengen zone has been temporarily suspended and it is now almost impossible for non-Europeans to enter the continent. Germany has declared that it will not be sharing crucial medical supplies. The supposed solidarity the EU claims to represent with its member states just isn’t there, much less for aliens who should not be allowed to immigrate to Europe by the millions to begin with.

The EU’s only point seems to be as a corral for sovereign countries for high finance’s benefit, as well as a cash cow to produce record profits for French and German corporations, who swamp smaller nations with their products and loan them cheap credit to buy them in order to hollow out the manufacturing of their neighbors and make them permanent debt-slaves.

As citizens of the West, we now ask: Why do we only stop immigration when there’s a pandemic? Why is the largely white middle and working class only entitled to decent health care when it’s coronavirus and not any of the countless other crippling diseases that people die from, often getting into massive debt in the process? Why does Mike Pence only express solidarity with the tribulations of average Americans now? Why are so many people living paycheck to paycheck, indebted up to their eyes or working as “independent contractors” for “gigs” that provide absolutely no benefits, no stability or even basic worker’s rights?

It is now, during a meltdown finally impacting those at the very top, that the public sees clearly that what they constantly vote for and never get is a product of corruption rather than inability.

The Price of Doing the Wrong Thing

Corporations, especially those in charge of airline travel and plane construction, are begging for bailouts after blowing trillions of their profits and Trump tax-cut on parasitic stock buybacks that have been wiped out in the blink of an eye.

A modern country cannot survive a total collapse of its flight industry. They have no cash on hand and these scum are trying to extort the taxpayer into massive subsidies, which they will predictably try to use to continue malpractice like astonishing compensation for failed CEOs and speculative counter-productive trickery that led to them being in these dire straits to begin with.

Enough of the Reaganist nonsense. Pay their shareholders what their stock is currently worth and nationalize these companies.

In respects to our healthcare system, investment banks are planning for companies to gouge consumers on life-or-death medication, including a potential coronavirus cure. This monstrous plan must be met with an iron fist, including criminal charges if necessary.

A new bill sponsored by Lindsey Graham, Richard Blumenthal, Josh Hawley and Dianne Feinstein called the EARN IT Act of 2020 will force encrypted communication providers, like Telegram and Protonmail, to give American intelligence services the ability to wiretap private chats or face steep legal penalties. The law’s supporters are using the cover of coronavirus panic to quietly advance it without much of a debate.

According to the bill’s text, it is intended to fight sex trafficking and child pornography online by criminally implicating tech companies that do not create a back channel for federal law enforcement to access on a whim. The nuts and bolts on how this will work has been kept opaque. A committee composed of members of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security will set the terms only after it passes.

Graham and Blumenthal are both dyed in the wool Zionists, not child advocates. Dianne Feinstein, who represents Silicon Valley, is unlikely to have put her name to this bill without the explicit support of Facebook, Google, and other big tech firms suffering from a well-deserved lack of public trust. Josh Hawley, who claims to be a populist, appears to be attempting to channel wide support for ending tech censorship towards the nefarious end of increasing it.

Senator Ron Wyden has publicly opposed the bill, stating that it is “a transparent and deeply cynical effort effort by a few well-connected corporations and the Trump administration to use child sexual abuse to their political advantage, the impact to free speech and the security and privacy of every single American be damned.”

Wyden questioned the motives of the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security in supporting this effort. If combating child pornography and sexual abuse of minors is really a priority, why are federal law enforcement bodies dedicated to prosecuting pedophile activity short on manpower and underfunded?

The real motive behind this bill is to increase surveillance of white political dissidents in a time when the liberal order and Jewish power has become fragile.

Recently, debates on encryption in the Judenpress have been led by figures like Rita Katz and Will Bedingfield. Their complaint is that “white supremacists” are migrating to Telegram and other encrypted apps, thus skirting censorship. From May to October 2019, “far-right” Telegram channels increased 117%, from 65,523 to 142,486. Many popular nationalist commentators are rapidly building impressive audiences on Telegram as more and more people are banned from social media or abandon it. The claim is that these groups are “terrorists,’ but nothing is said about how many of the chatrooms featuring people soliciting others to commit crimes are run by undercover FBI agents themselves.

Clearly they don’t believe the “white terrorism” angle, their real motive, is compelling enough to survive public scrutiny when trying to get this law through.

The reason for the mass migration of dissidents to these platforms is due to a dramatic increase in political censorship on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and beyond. Dissidents from around the world have utilized encrypted chats to coordinate political activity for years, often times with the eager support of American intelligence agencies. Now that Americans and Europeans are responding to tyranny in our own countries in the same way, they want to put an end to this last bastion of private correspondence for good.

Ironically, the EARN IT act’s pretense of fighting pedophilia has given civil liberties groups like the ACLU and Electronic Frontier Foundation peer permission to publicly oppose it. If they had simply come out and said the law was intended to monitor white men engaging in political dissent, these organizations would’ve stayed silent, though it would’ve been a tougher sell to Republican voters in an election year.

The federal government has all the tools it needs to combat child pornography right now. What it lacks is political will and resources. In the last 6 months Congress has had far more hearings on “combating white supremacy” than combating the rape or exploitation of children.

This bipartisan effort by the Trump administration and Democrats, both in the pay of Jewish money, has nothing to do with protecting kids.

Irish journalists at the student publication The Burkean have published a series of phone calls and social media communications exposing prominent officials and left-wing activists in an international conspiracy to astroturf American-style anarchist paramilitary activity aimed at stifling political discussion on Irish college campuses.

The investigation began when the journalists created a twitter account adorned in “Antifa” imagery that solicited the public for recruits to create an American/German style “Antifa” group that would target nationalist students. What they found was not the occasional mentally ill person, but prominent university administrators.

In one recorded call with Jacob Woolf, the leader of the Jewish Society at Trinity College (there are only 2500 Jews in all of Ireland), Woolf told the journalists he would travel to New York City to meet with prominent Zionist acquaintances and raise money to start an official “Anti-Semitism Watchdog” in Ireland to aid the “Antifa” group. What makes Woolf’s offer so interesting is that he is a leading organizer for People Before Profits, a Trotskyite activist group that claims to fight for Palestinian rights.

Woolf also expressed a desire to try and “infiltrate” The Burkean itself in order to spy and blackmail the journalists working there. According to him, he had influence with a senior manager at Trinity College Dublin and could have dissident students caught in his sights expelled on a whim.

Michelle Byrne, another prominent conspirator, was recorded promising the fake “antifa” members to collect the private information of right-wing students using her database and hand it to them for the explicit purpose of physically attacking them. Byrne is the Deputy President of the Union of Students Ireland (USI), which is supposed to represent hundreds of thousands of young people regardless of their political affiliation.

In response to this reporting, the USI suspended Byrne pending investigation.

Other prominent political officials and prize winning university administrators were recorded trying to help the undercover journalists in a conspiracy of political violence.

Woolf’s participation as a leading left-wing figure personifies how the line between “anti-fascist” extremists and above-ground Zionist organizations has become blurred in recent years. Members of groups like these often belong to the same tightly knit ethnic networks. Not long ago, the “antifa” group Hope Not Hate teamed up with the pro-Israel “Community Security Trust” Jewish vigilante group to publish a dossier of opposition research and surveillance they conducted on Vanessa Beeley, a left-wing anti-war journalist who exposed the White Helmets in Syria as frauds.

As for the broader public in Ireland, The Burkean’s excellent work has provoked outrage among the broader public. Institutions like Trinity College, unlike contemporary American Universities, are culturally expected to live up to their traditions of spirited intellectual exchange.

In recent years, Ireland has become a laboratory for radical neoliberal excesses, particularly in the fields of economics and mass immigration. In response, organizations like Justin Barrett’s National Party have emerged to organize native Irishmen in their proud nationalist tradition against the globalist forces destroying their country.

Young Ireland appears to be on the brink of a drawn out battle with Zionist interlopers like Jacob Woolf, who is in the country apparently just to terrorize Irish people, as well as Michelle Byrne, a careerist moron who asks strangers on the internet to engage in violence against her own constituents for their beliefs.The Burkean’s stunning work may have set this conspiracy in the making back significantly.

The federal reserve recently announced a $1.5 trillion dollar coronavirus “stimulus” package, $500 billion of which will go to incentivize banks to keep lending.

Another maneuver, cutting Federal Reserve interest rates from an already low amount to effectively 0%, means big banks will be handed the equivalent of interest-free cash under the assumption that they will keep America’s heavily in-debted corporations afloat.

But where is the evidence that bank bailouts do that? It took a decade for the 2008 bank bailouts to finally “work” – as in put sufficient numbers of people back to work. A more pressing question is why do ordinary people need to pay interest fixed at whatever rate middleman shareholders at private financiers want in order to produce/consume?

Last November, analysts found that US corporations are highly leveraged with $10 trillion dollars in debt. The dirty secret of liberal capitalism is that economic expansion (jobs, not just stock market numbers) is highly dependent on the privately owned apparatus of the federal reserve and the state to invent credit bubbles for private interests to have incentives to risk capital in a productive endeavor. If consumer activity falls, these corporations will be unable to pay owed interest to their creditors, since all of the above are expected to put shareholders above maintaining employment. Banks like stimulus beneficiary Goldman Sachs will increase the usury rate on credit loans if the market switches into bear mode, which is bad news for all the heavily indebted companies it loans to.

Already, multiple major companies like AT&T, GM and CVS are barely above junk bond rating These companies are as guilty and irresponsible as the banks, since they have used the cheap credit largely to engage in behavior like useless mergers, which provide quick profits to shareholders but not much else. The outcome of having their bonds down rated any further will be exposure to the highly speculative vultures in the junk bond market, which in the end will cause a spike in the unemployment rate.

Credit is already dirt cheap. The problem is that both the banks and the multi-nationals are highly corrupt, inefficient and are run by people who do not have America’s interest in mind. The oligarch’s strategy to keep Wall Street afloat does not take into account globalized supply chain issues either. If the coronavirus epidemic spreads and grinds international commerce to a halt, how will handing banks more cheap money solve this?

The US government’s lack of direct control over the nation’s central bank and the plutocratic nature of our weak state means that common sense solutions are off the table. Why doesn’t the state buy up majority shares in large corporations (or outright nationalize them, as happened with the short successful experiment with General Motors in 2009) and use the $1.5 trillion at low interest to develop American industrial independence?

The best thing Trump and Congress have to offer when it comes to relieving the pandemic burden on average citizens is a “tax-cut” that suspends Medicare and Social Security payments by employers and workers for a year. It will cost $1 trillion dollars. Previous suggestions, like offering federally funded paid sick leave, were shot down by the Republicans in Congress. The current plan does nothing to serve people who will be hit hardest either financially or health-wise: those that get laid off, the unemployed, students, people with jobs that don’t provide sick leave and the elderly – who have a coronavirus mortality rate of 22%. For the self-employed who get sick or have no business coming in, they won’t have taxes to pay because they will be going bankrupt. If the government is willing to get in that much debt for another “tax-cut,” why not just hand every American citizen money and small/medium scale business’ money to tide everyone over?

The Chinese government’s pandemic recovery plan demonstrates why they have gone from a developing nation to economic peer of America in such a short period of time. Their command economy is unstoppable and makes the pencil necked Jew economists that invented neoliberalism look like fools. The People’s Bank of China, which is run by the state, is giving underlings $79 billion in stimulus money at a higher interest rate than the fed, but on the condition that they loan it to small and medium enterprises and forgive their late payments so that economic damage is reversed and production can recover quickly. Federal reserve stimulus money, in contrast, has no strings attached, and in 2009 banks used their money to compensate CEOs and shareholders who helped create the economic crisis while they retrenched on loaning to firms struggling to get by. There are numerous problems on all sides in this equation, but the fed could at least try and fight abuses by recipient banks who burn through their capital by paying shareholders more than they earnings justify through a countercycle capital buffer. It won’t.

Next week, the Chinese state will be unveiling a thorough relief plan that will likely include sending households no strings attached money and a boost in subsidies to save small businesses, which will reboot consumption and production.

This strategy, along with a massive infrastructure program, was deployed during their 2008 global financial crisis, which China recovered from much more quickly than liberal capitalist nations. China’s swift recovery restored their extremely high growth rates and helped raise other nations around the world from sinking even deeper into economic malaise.

Neoliberal economists criticized the 2008 Chinese state’s effort by claiming the program would incur debt. This is true, China’s debt to GDP ratio is currently 47%, but the US is in a much worse situation, where debt is over 100% of our GDP. In America, where 10% of the population owns 80% of all stocks, the growth spurred by money injections benefits fewer people .

In a country where 25% of the population is afraid to see a doctor due to the cost and the government is unwilling to implement a total travel and immigration ban, it’s clear that our system is a house of cards waiting to get coughed on. Wall Street and Goldman Sachs are the disease, not the cure.
