The Awakening Part 16 - White Radicalization

image: 17yr vigilante

Virtually every seized power justified over the last decade in the name of “terrorism” has been applied to a wide range of domestic dissent. The most significant civil liberties trend of the last decade, in my view, is the importation of War on Terror tactics onto US soil, applied to US citizens - from the sprawling Surveillance State and powers of indefinite detention to the para-militarization of domestic police forces and the rapidly emerging fleet of drones now being deployed in countless ways. As I’ve ARGUED PREVIOUSLY, the true purpose of this endless expansion of state power in the name of “terrorism” is control over anticipated domestic protest and unrest.

One thing I always wondered - is how does a young mind get radicalized?

Radicalized like a suicide bomber who believes what he believes so strongly - is ready to TURN INTO A TERRORIST and lay down his life for his cause.

Some answers may be forthcoming.

The United States just a crossed another line towards it’s end with a 17 year old white kit being praised all over the news and our President for shooting a black man.


Trump Defends Kyle Rittenhouses Deadly Shooting: “They Attacked Him”
The president said the armed teen Trump supporter in Kenosha, Wisconsin, “probably would have been killed” at protest over police shooting of Jacob Blake

[President] DONALD TRUMP defended Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old Trump supporter who fatally shot two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last week. The president also blamed the civil unrest on “left-wing political violence.”

Speaking at a White House coronavirus update, Trump called Rittenhouse’s attack at a Black Lives Matter demonstration, held days after Kenosha police wounded Jacob Blake, an unarmed Black father, an “interesting situation.”

“He was trying to get away from them, I guess ... and he fell,” Trump claimed, citing videos of the Rittenhouse attack. “And then they very violently attacked him.”

The president claimed that the teenager, who was carrying an assault-style rifle, “probably would’ve been killed.”

“He was in very big trouble. He probably would’ve been killed, but its under investigation,” Trump said.

Rittenhouse, who lives in Antioch, Illinois, was among a number of vigilantes who came to the Kenosha protest with firearms, claiming they wanted to” protect” public property.

VIDEOS FILMED AT THE PROTEST show a person who appears to be Rittenhouse carrying a semiautomatic rifle. The gunman trips and then can be seen shooting at two protesters who confront him. He then walks to police officers with his hands raised as bystanders yell to police that people were shot.

Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, died in the shooting. A volunteer medic, 26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz, was wounded in the arm.

Protests first broke out in Kenosha after police shot Blake at least seven times in his back on Aug. 23 as he walked away from officers and toward a parked SUV that had his three children inside. The shooting left Blake PARALYZED from the waist down.

A video of the encounter went viral, drawing even more protesters and counterprotesters, and along with them looters and armed vigilantes to Kenosha.

The week after the Kenosha protesters were fatally shot, Trump would not comment publicly on Rittenhouse or the victims, even as he complained of the violence happening at anti-racism protests across the country, including ongoing ones in Minneapolis, New York City and Portland, Oregon.

On Monday, Trump spent most of the White House news conference blaming Democrats, Democratic state leaders and his presidential opponent, Joe Biden, for the civil unrest.

He accused Biden of using “Mafia talking points” to incite the unrest and falsely claimed that Biden had not spoken out against the rioting and looting that has taken place during some of the protests.

At a campaign event in Pittsburgh earlier Monday, Biden had condemned those acts and clashes between anti-racism activists and Trump supporters.

“Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It’s LAWLESSNESS, plain and simple,” Biden said. “Violence will not bring change. It will only bring destruction. Its wrong in every way.”

Trump also defended a large caravan of Trump supporters and Patriot Prayer members, a far-right group, that drove through Portland on Saturday. Videos show that some people in the caravan brought paintball guns and pepper spray, which they used on counterprotesters.

On the night of the pro-Trump event in Portland, Aaron J. Danielson, who has been identified as a “friend” of the Patriot Prayer group, was fatally shot.

When asked by reporters why he was not condemning his own supporters who brought paintball guns to the Portland demonstration, Trump insisted that they brought them to defend themselves.

“Paint is a defensive mechanism,” Trump said. “Paint is not bullets.”

Biden released his own statement on Monday night, urging Trump to join him in plainly denouncing all types of violence at protests. Biden accused Trump of “being too scared” to call for the violence to end.

“Tonight, the president declined to rebuke violence. He wouldn’t even repudiate one of his supporters who is charged with murder because of his attacks on others,” Biden said. “He is too weak, too scared of the hatred he has stirred to put an end to it.”

“"So once again, I urge the president to join me in saying that while peaceful protest is a right a necessity - violence is wrong, period,” Biden added. “No matter who does it, no matter what political affiliation they have. Period.”



Have the First Shots Been Fired in the Next American Civil War?

By John Crump
August 31, 2020

Is the new American Civil War here?

“For the last couple of years, I have been saying that we have been in a cold civil war,” but it seems like it is becoming a hot war. On my old podcast (Patriot News), I predicted the next Civil War would start with small scale skirmishes around the cities and then would spread out to the suburbs and finally to the rural areas.

These events are what we are seeing around the country today. The flashpoint was the death of George Floyd that started rioting in Minneapolis after months of being locked in our homes. Democrats were quick to try to capitalize on the end of the man for their own despicable needs. They hate Trump so much that they would rather see the country burn than see our President Trump succeed. It was the perfect storm.

I also predicted that the Black Lives Matter movement would be co-opted by Antifa to push their Marxist values on the mainstream. Make no mistake, ANTIFA IS A VIOLENT TERRORIST GROUP hell-bent on overthrowing the federal government. They are opportunist that will use any cause to push their twisted agenda. They don’t care about black lives. They care about implementing communism in the country. They want to accomplish Stalin’s dream of the “Hammer and Sickle” flying over the White House. They hate our country and they hate our liberty and freedom. They want to control our thoughts and actions.

Democrats have embraced the far-left movement. Biden and Harris cover-up for the rioters and looters because that is a big part of their base of support. They blame ”BOOGALOO BOIS” or rightwing groups such as Three Percenters and Oath Keepers for the crimes of the far left. Oregon Governor Kate Brown even had THE GALL TO BLAME PATRIOT PRAYER for one of their members being gunned by a violent Antifa member for just because he was a Trump supporter.

“We got a Trump supporter here,” a voice in the video can be heard saying in a video before shots rang out into the night.

Brown claimed that it was the Patriot Prayers fault for exercising their right to protest earlier in the day. Antifa terrorists celebrated in the streets as they left a man dying in the streets because of his hat. Brown did not mention that the far-left terror cell that has made Portland their caliphate. Maybe because she is on their side?

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler blamed DHS for the shooting. He continued to reject Trump’s offer to help get his out of control city back under control. Wheeler is another liberal politician that is afraid of calling out the radical left even though they occupied his apartment building. He fears the people that pull the strings of these common thugs.

Another Antifa member and child rapist, Joseph Rosenbaum, attacked a young 17-year-old kid named KYLE RITTENHOUSE in Kenosha, WI, for trying to put out a dumpster fire. The Antifa members were planning on pushing the blazing dumpster into a police barricade. The 17-year-old was armed and could fight back. The child molester tried to take his rifle. Fearing for his life, Rittenhouse defended himself, killing Rosenbaum.

THE ANGRY ANTIFA MOB STARTED TO CHASE RITTENHOUSE. He could have easily defended himself with his AR-15, but he decided to try to retreat to protect the lives of his pursuers. He ran down the street to get away until he slipped and fell to the ground. That is when domestic abuser Gaige Grosskreutz pulled his gun, but Rittenhouse got the first shot off ripping Grosskreutz bicep off his arm. Later Grosskreutz said he regretted not killing the kid.

Another serial abuser, Anthony Huber, attacked Rittenhouse by trying to beat Rittenhouse with a skateboard. We have seen an unarmed man beat into a coma by a man with a skateboard only a few weeks ago. The attack forced Rittenhouse to defend himself once again. Huber took a bullet to heart, and it dropped him dead. Rittenhouse had other rioters that were chasing him in his sights, but they stopped and put their hands up. Rittenhouse didnt pull the trigger and retreated.

The liberal Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley filed first-degree homicide charges against Rittenhouse even though it was very clearly self-defense. He insinuated that Rittenhouse was there to kill people. In a despicable move, Biden went on CNN and called Rittenhouse a white supremacist militia member. It didn’t matter that it wasn’t true. Biden had to double down since his running mate told people to stay out in the streets.

The stance is hurting Biden’s chances of winning the election against Trump in November. As it stands right now, Trump is closer to Biden in the polls than he was to Clinton. There is also Biden’s issue with the undercover Trump voter. A Trump voter is twice as likely to not tell the poll taker who they really are going to vote for in the fall.

If the debates happen, Biden will have to explain his rejection of law and order. I believe this is the real reason Democrats are asking him to sit out the debates, or it could because he has a hard time remembering where he is most of the time. Right now, Biden has been avoiding the press. Don Lemon even begged for the riots to stop because they are helping Trump.

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but the Biden campaign must know their stance on the riots is hurting them with the American people. Why would they stay on a course that is driving them towards the cliff? The only reason I can think of is someone or some group with a lot of money is refusing to let them take a stand against the violent anarcho-communist rioters that are plaguing the American streets. Maybe someone with the same goal as the Antifa members themselves.

It is not only Biden’s choice to abandon law and order. It is not only their call to defund the police making our streets more dangerous. It is about the buses that police stopped coming to Kenosha from Portland. It is about the paid protestors that harassed Rand Paul in Washington. D.C. It is about pallets of bricks found at protest sites. It is about the bail money being paid out to get the protestors out of jail. Who is paying the bill for Antifa?

Then we have the cover-up on Social Media. Facebook, Twitter, and Google have taken a stand against one side. The platforms are blocking supportive posts for Rittenhouse while letting Antifa organize their violent protest out in the open on their platform. Twitter banned Cassandra Fairbanks for supporting Rittenhouse.

Facebook also personally banned me for calling out their allowance of foreign election interference by the French press. The Agence France-Presse (AFP) was marking Kamala Harriss anti-gun past as false even though it was reported accurate. The social media giant even marked her amicus brief as fake even though it was submitted to SCOTUS in the Heller case. Facebook banned me for life, effectively trying to remove me from the public square and take away my voice, but I will not back down.

GoFundMe pulled down the support fund for Rittenhouse’s defense. The fundraising site still has up the campaign for Jacob Blake. The police shooting that set off the Kenosha riots involved Blake, who was wanted on a warrant of sexual assault, refusing police demands and then reaching for something in his car. The police had no other choice than to shoot the wanted man. The NFL is going to put Blakes name on their helmets. Just imagine his alleged victim being forced to see her rapist be raised to saint level.

My final question is, “What will happen in November after the next election?”

For the first time in my life, I do not see how we can get through the next election without violence. I am not talking about broken windows and looted stores in the cities. I am talking about the tipping point of the next American Civil War. I fear the enemies are at the gates. The battles will spill over to the suburbs.

They are preparing, so we MUST PREPARE as well. We must stand up for our kids, our country, and our Liberty. Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction, and I will not let it die in this generation.

There is no middle ground in this war. It is time to choose sides. We might not want to fight, but the fight is coming no matter what we want.

Article43 Turns Sixteen


In these pages are SIXTEEN YEARS worth of musings and clipped articles found on the web talking about jobs, unemployment, the downfall of the United States and my PERSONAL journey of sadness brought on from loosing my career at MA BELL, and SUBSEQUENTLY working CRAPPY, low-pay, disposable jobs since, to try to keep from winding up homeless.

AT FIRST I was grateful for $10/hr piecework jobs, still having hope that at some point I’d find a decent job that earns enough to pay the bills for my modest home.

That didn’t happen and I’ve grown to resent those low-paid slave jobs - because in the end - they didn’t offer hope - just disappointment.

To survive I’m collecting Social Security that pays about 1/2 my bills, and what’s left from the cash-outs on home refinances to make up the rest.

My last cat was euthanized a few years ago because the vet bill to fix his jaundice was very expensive. Having a pet is now a luxury I can’t afford.

I walk around with four missing teeth because I can’t afford crowns.  One of those teeth I PULLED MYSELF to save money.

I keep suicidal thoughts to myself - like I was asked to by my few friends - but it amplifies job loss depression when I realize I also cry for help on the internet, yet nobody contacts me, even if to call me a LAZY BUM that should stop whining.

Psychologist or meds you say?

Psychologists are surrogate friends.  Nothing beats a real friend to talk to.  Pills?  Even if a pill can SOMEHOW FOOL ME into somehow thinking I’m happy - my near-worthless MEDICAL INSURANCE doesn’t cover it until massive copay-pays and deductables - that I CAN’T AFFORD - are first paid.

The economy has never been in worse shape.  Whatever growth we had since the last recession is gone, THANKS TO the new CORONAVIRUS, and continued lack of political will to create - or bring back - good paying jobs.

Last time I looked - yesterday - 27 million Americans were collecting unemployment.

That’s about 1/4 of our working age population.

I’m glad I can still fill these pages with things to THINK ABOUT, and hope nobody else suffers the innner torment that comes from LIVING AS a long-term UNEMPLOYED/UNDEREMPLOYED boomer, discarded and disowned by friends and society.
