UFOs Are the Least of Our Problems

By: Cliff Kincaid

Tucker Carlson is demanding that the Pentagon protect America from Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs. I think the only “aliens” we should be concerned about are the illegal kind coming across the border. We have pictures of them, and they are not little green men who say “Take me to your leader.”

As our borders crumble, America and Israel are in retreat, as China Joe proves that Russia and Hamas can count on him, too.

First, Biden waived sanctions that would have made it more difficult to complete the Russian Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline. Then, Biden pressured Israel into a cease-fire with the terrorist group Hamas.

On Capitol Hill, Senator Bernie Sanders introduced a joint resolution blocking the recent sale of $735 million in weapons to Israel. The effort, backed by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Mark Pocan, D-Wis., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., may not pass. But as noted by the Institute for Policy Studies, “progressive social movements and a growing number of members of Congress” are turning against Israel.

“Tell your representatives in Congress to join Bernie Sanders and AOC in stopping a $735 million arms transfer to Israel!” declares Code Pink, a group that had the ear of Barack Hussein Obama. Meanwhile, the Party for Socialism and Liberation was among dozens of communist groups that claimed to have turned out millions of people around the world into the streets “in solidarity with Palestinians standing up to deadly Israeli brutality.” One of their fronts is the ANSWER Coalition.

It was this kind of pressure that led to Biden demanding Israel stop fighting the terrorists, who were using civilians as human shields, under the guise of a “ceasefire.” It’s the same kind of pressure that led to Biden approving a gas pipeline that puts Europe under Russia’s thumb and gives Vladimir Putin energy coercion over some of our “allies.”

How Totalitarianism Rhymes Throughout History: Czechoslovakia, China, & Venezuela

By: Sam Jacobs | Ammo.com

what is totalitarianism“It can’t happen here” is a political cliche in the United States. Regardless of your personal viewpoint, there is a vast swath of the American population who simply do not believe in the possibility of any kind of totalitarianism in the United States.

It’s worth noting that throughout history, in virtually every place that totalitarian regimes have arisen, the residents of these countries felt the same way. Russia was seen as too traditional and backward, the power of the Czar too entrenched to be defeated. Germany had been viewed throughout most of the modern period as the home of GoetheSchiller, and Mozart, a place where the local Jewish population had largely assimilated.

Because totalitarianism emerges differently throughout history in different countries, it’s crucial to take a broader view of how totalitarian regimes arise. For example, when we’re discussing the rise of communism or the rise of fascism, we see different trends in Russia than we do in China, different trends in Italy than we do in Germany. When we examine multiple, somewhat lesser-known examples of the rise of socialism throughout the world, we paint a picture of the different ways in which socialism originated and its possible resurgence.

This case study of terror analyses three examples of totalitarianism throughout history. In Czechoslovakia, the Communist Party was able to establish the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic by leveraging little more than a strong showing – but not a victory – in the parliamentary elections. During the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of Communist China in the 1960s, Chairman Mao came out of relative isolation to radically remake an already communist country. Lastly, we will look right in America’s backyard at the rise of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

More than perhaps anywhere else, the rise of totalitarianism throughout the world is an excellent example of the quote often attributed to Mark Twain, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” If you are looking for a mechanical repeat of the past, you are looking in the wrong place. Our point is not to show you that the exact same things are currently happening here in the United States, but to highlight similarities.

The Czechoslovak Coup d’Etat of 1948

Standing on this side of history, it’s easy to take Soviet domination over Eastern Europe as a given. However, at no point during the early transition from Nazi domination to the post-war period was it a fait accompli that the formerly occupied nations of Eastern Europe wouldn’t go back to being free and independent nations. Czechoslovakia is perhaps one of the best examples we have of a country that was by no means “destined” to go communist.
