    Thirty five seconds of that was very trippy. I'm not sure what three minutes would do to my brain.

    For me, it is truly frustrating to see the US called "America", i guess i don't belong to the group of people that can't see why it doesn't make any sense, so it kills me to see the word "America" used in that way

    Here's why

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-06-...led-state.html

    America is now a FAILED STATE… no rule of law, no police, no leadership, no free speech, no functioning markets and no equal protection under the law… YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN

    America is now a failed state.

    In America, you can call 911 and the police will never show up if your property is in or near a Black Lives Matter terrorist zone, which are now de facto “police no-go zones” on U.S. soil.

    In America, there are no functioning markets. Prices of stocks and bonds are set entirely by Federal Reserve money printing and interest rate manipulations. Rational investing has been obliterated. Market-driven price discovery is a distant memory. (This will end badly.)

    In America, voting for change doesn’t work. Rioting for change gets you everything you demand. That’s because the politicians ignore the voters but adore the rioters.

    In America, there is no equal protection under the law. When a group of violent terrorists seize your city, the “leaders” (the mayor and governor) will order police to evacuate, leaving you to fend for yourself against terrorist rule.

    In America, free speech has been annihilated. The left-wing fanatics who run the tech giants now decide which views are “offensive,” and those voices, websites and platforms are all banned while their own radical left-wing propaganda is allowed to flourish.

    In America, there is no political leadership whatsoever. The Democrats are traitors and the Republicans are feckless, spineless lose-o-crats who are utterly incapable of asserting even an inkling of leadership or the assertion of the principles they (falsely) claim to represent.

    In America, the U.S. government will print money and pay you to not work, then brain dead U.S. Senators (named Mitch McConnell) will wonder why small businesses can’t find workers who want to give up their enormous unemployment benefits and get a job that pays less than what people are collecting from the government. Only in America would the government pay people to avoid working, then panic as the economy craters because the labor pool has disappeared.

    In America, the food supply is filled with toxic chemicals that are all approved by corrupt government regulators, poisoning the population and leading to insane health care costs that are bankrupting the nation at every level.

    In America, the education system has collapsed into a cult-like communist indoctrination system, where students are taught hatred (against their country), bigotry (against whites) and victimization tactics to deploy during riots and civil unrest. The universities have essentially churned out a generation of terrorists who destroy, not citizens who create.

    In America, the entire legislative branch of the country is ruled by a corrupt Big Pharma drug cartel that controls all “science” and tells the medical journals to publish fraudulent, rigged studies that destroy the credibility of safe, low-cost drugs that could help save millions of lives from a global pandemic. In response, U.S. lawmakers bow down before Big Pharma and betray the American people, because the pharma lobby can write million-dollar checks to re-election campaigns.

    In America, the FBI kneels before actual terrorists while running its own “staged” terror plots across the country to try to pretend it’s still a law enforcement agency. It isn’t.

    In America, treasonous former officials like Hillary Clinton, James Comey and Andrew McCabe go free, even after committing crimes of treason against the nation, while innocent people who did nothing wrong (like Roger Stone) are persecuted and charged with crimes that can earn them life in prison.

    In America, violent looters, arsonists and rioters who are arrested for committing such crimes are universally set free by left-learning District Attorneys, because Leftists protect left-leaning terror groups in America. There is no rule of law, and there is no equal justice under the law.

    In America, entire police precincts surrender their territory to Antifa / Black Lives Matter terrorists, handing over tactical real estate to left-wing mobs while standing down and allowing violence to explode.

    In America, the fanaticism cult of left-wing lunacy is so powerful that we’re told “silence is violence,” while we’re also told that the actual violence of the lunatic Left is “peaceful and tolerant.” In other words, if you are silent and peaceful, you are accused of “violence.” But if you are committing actual violence, you are described as “peaceful” by the media.

    In America, the food processing plants are shut down over fears of the coronavirus, but left-wing mobs are openly encouraged to gather in the streets, with the media claiming the pandemic isn’t as important as looting, rioting and committing acts of arson in public. So why is social distancing more important than the national food supply, then?

    In America, when you vote for any political leader to represent your interests, the moment they take office, they only represent one of two things: If they’re a Democrat, they represent anarchy and communism; if they’re a Republican, they represent corporate profits and nothing else. YOU are never represented, no matter whom you vote for.

    In America, the borders aren’t protected and any illegal alien can vote in an election, no I.D. required. Any idea of protecting the process of democracy has long been abandoned.

    In America, the most devastating looters aren’t the Black Lives Matter lunatics in the streets; it’s actually the Federal Reserve that’s printing trillions of dollars in fiat currency, stealing the value of the money you’ve worked to earn and save. Each day, Americans awaken to “silent fiscal looting” that has drained their bank accounts while they slept, and no one riots because it all happens silently, and the media has zero interest in covering it.

    In America, when new jurors are appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in the hopes that they will represent the U.S. Constitution, they end up only representing the interests of the state, and nothing else. The idea of “originalist” Supreme Court justices is now a pathetic joke.

    In America, if you run an honest online business and build an audience of followers over a decade of effort, you can be destroyed literally overnight by the tech giants who pull your advertising revenue, cancel your channels and de-platform all your content… even if you merely disagreed with the insanity of the cult-like Left.

    In America, you can lose your job for not declaring that you support Black Lives Matter. Because “silence is violence,” which means your obedience is demanded… or else. (Remember when the Left used to place “COEXISTENCE” bumper stickers on their cars? Those days are long gone. Now it’s more like, “DESTROY THE DEPLORABLES!”

    In America, the masses are too fat, too medicated and too brainwashed by the deceptive media to rise up and defend anything. They instantly surrender to every insane demand by the lunatic Left, and they will gladly surrender all their freedoms and their entire nation for one more box of Pop-Tarts.

    America is a failed state.

    And who turned America into a failed state?
    -The treasonous church pastors who decided it was more important for their churches to be popular than to operate on principle.
    -The treasonous members of Congress who amassed their own personal fortunes via insider trading while the rest of America burned.
    -The treasonous tech billionaires that conspired with China to silence all pro-America voices while working to foment hatred and division for profit.
    -The lazy, pathetic, overfed American people who retreated to comfort and acquiescence, unwilling to take a stand for anything that mattered because it might interfere with the next airing of Judge Judy.
    -The lazy, pathetic American workers who decided they were too good to work and didn’t have to show up on time, expecting to be paid for not working (which the government happily obliged). “They have lost the lust for freedom, the demand for liberty,” writes the editor of TwelveRound.com. “They seek to placate their persecutors and appear reasonable on Twitter and Facebook when the demands of the mob and the government have become completely unreasonable.”
    -The corporate CEOs who caved to left-wing lunacy out of fear of losing sales for taking a stand for America. See the full list of corporations and brands that now actively fund terror-linked organizations in America.
    The communist teachers and college professors who exploited their positions of influence to indoctrinate an entire generation of youth with bigotry, hatred, lies and deceit… all in an effort to usher in a communist overthrow of the United States of America.
    The stupid, mindless internet users who continue to use Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter even after knowing that they’re being censored, surveiled and tracked. Instead of shifting to alternate platforms of freedom, they censor themselves to conform with the obedience training of the lunatic Left.
    -The food and pesticide corporations that poisoned the food supply for profit, feeding the masses nothing but toxic chemicals that promote chronic degenerative disease.
    -The child-abusing parents who pushed their children into transgenderism, parading them around as trophies of progressivism while chemical and physically maiming their own children for life. All in the name of “progress!”
    -The corrupt, greed-driven doctors who took money from Big Pharma to mass poison the entire nation with toxic prescription medications and chemotherapy poisons. And then they wonder why everyone acts like they’ve been lobotomized.

    So here’s what’s coming next:
    Because America is a failed state, things are going to start disintegrating at an accelerated rate. We’re all going to start seeing:

    Failed infrastructure (power grid, telecommunications, water supplies, etc.).
    Total collapse of the rule of law (anarchy, chaos, cops quitting en masse, etc.).
    Financial collapse, followed by an explosion of nationwide riots, during which most U.S. cities will be gutted
    Executions and kidnappings
    Bank failures and the collapse of financial institutions
    Political anarchy, attempted revolutions, assassinations of key leaders, etc.
    The rise of private security contractors to protect businesses with armed, military-trained guards
    A worsening of drug abuse and suicides
    Increases in child trafficking and child kidnappings for the trafficking trade
    Rapidly escalating censorship, including browser-based blocking of targeted websites
    An explosion in homelessness and tent cities as destitution and despair spreads across the nation
    Civil war and secession as the nation fragments into smaller nation-states.

    As I’ve said before, Trump is the last President of the United States of America as we know it. We are entering a time of tremendous evil and destruction, and almost no one is willing to stand against it. That’s the great failure of America: The failure to defend her.

    This is the stuff that will lead to world-wide collapse.



    Alarming heat scorched Siberia on Saturday as the small town of Verkhoyansk (67.5°N latitude) reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, 32 degrees above the normal high temperature. If verified, this is likely the hottest temperature ever recorded in Siberia and also the hottest temperature ever recorded north of the Arctic Circle, which begins at 66.5°N.

    The town is 3,000 miles east of Moscow and further north than even Fairbanks, Alaska. On Friday, the city of Caribou, Maine, tied an all-time record at 96 degrees Fahrenheit and was once again well into the 90s on Saturday. To put this into perspective, the city of Miami, Florida, has only reached 100 degrees one time since the city began keeping temperature records in 1896.
    This heat is not an isolated occurrence. Parts of Siberia have been sizzling for weeks and running remarkably above normal since January. May featured astonishing warmth in western Siberia, where some locales were 18 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, not just for a day, but for the month. As a whole, western Siberia averaged 10 degrees above normal for May, obliterating anything previously experienced.
    Zombie fires are the fires that burned last season, and they never stopped smoldering through the fierce and bitter cold Arctic winter.

    The fires have erupted yet again as the temperatures rise to record-breaking highs. These fires are exploding in Siberia and across the Taiga forests of northern Canada and Alaska.
    Fort McMurray may sound familiar; it is the city that supports the extraction of the filthy Alberta Tar Sands. The tar sands came close to igniting just a couple of years ago, so close that Fort McMurray had to be evacuated.

    Scientists fear that the fires are the least of our problems. As permafrost thaw accelerates, releasing more carbon into the atmosphere, impacting the stability of glaciers and sea ice as well as increasing the threats of drought, flood, and heat from climate change. Because what happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic.
    It is not just warmer temperatures and erupting wildfires across the Taiga. Climate change has also brought extreme flooding and pest invasions northward into Siberia and beyond to the north pole.
    We have family in New England and they're dealing with very hot temps which they are not used to at all. Not yet, anyway.

    I went to a Fry's electronics store yesterday and I thought it was closed because it was so deserted. They were open and their shelves were nearly empty. They've gone completely online. The way I see it the sectors that will suffer don't specialize in communications of any kind and that is a limited in large part to, dare we say it, the oil and gas industry. Of course, we need oil products of many kinds but the 'battery' industry is the one that has been the hope for the future, not the least of reasons is our survival. It certainly isn't out of the question that world economy will contract, but if one is looking for a silver lining, it would put the notion of a 'gold standard' back in the realm of 'it could really happen' rather than the exploitative fantasy that it chugs along on now.

    The uneducated middle sector has been increasingly stressed to find a way out, perhaps this is the kick in the buttocks that the right insists everyone not conservative needs. We are an innovative species, until we're not, and then it is c'est la vie. Restaurants, entertainment, and other sectors will find a way to maximize profits, that has never been a shortcoming of the human species... We'll make it.

    I think something like The Venus Project could have been a viable option to save civilization as it is. It still could be, but I feel that people still resist such revolutionary visions and thinking. We would need a change more than ever, but people always resist the change too. The collective level of consciousness is too low and too dumbed down. Division rules our times, we can't agree almost about anything.

    Yet our current path is leading only towards one direction and that is collapse. We will be just another civilization like Atlantis which perhaps generations in the future will hardly believe that even existed. Maybe they'll find some ancient relics from our times and wonder what they were about. They will wonder why that society didn't make it either.

    Except for the rather over-the-top patriotic grandstanding, I agree with Pat Buchanan's assessment of the current political and law-and-order situation in the US below. The Bidenistas have pretty much alieniated everyone, except a few select minorities at this point. Like him or not, Trump stands for Law and Order and that will win him this coming election in a landslide.

    https://vdare.com/articles/patrick-j...to_paragraph=7

    Patrick J. Buchanan: A Culture War Battle Trump Can Win

    Speaking at Mount Rushmore on Friday, and from the White House lawn on Saturday, July 4, Donald Trump recast the presidential race.

    He seized upon an issue that can turn his fortunes around, and the wounded howls of the media testify to the power of his message.

    Standing beneath the mammoth carved images of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, Trump declared: "Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities."

    These mobs are made up of Marxists, criminals and anarchists. Their cause is a cultural revolution. "Their goal is not a better America. Their goal is the end of America."

    After reciting the achievements of his four predecessors, Trump added: "No movement that seeks to dismantle these treasured American legacies can possibly have a love of America at its heart."

    Then he put it right into the basement hideaway of Joe Biden: "No person who remains quiet at the destruction of this resplendent heritage can possibly lead us to a better future."

    Trump is calling out Biden's silence in the face of an onslaught against our heroes and history as manifest political cowardice that makes Biden a moral accomplice of the mobs.

    One day, Basement Boy is going to have to speak out.

    Where was Biden when Trump was standing up for America on Independence Day?

    As his Party tweeted that Trump's trip to Mount Rushmore was aimed at "glorifying white supremacy," Biden was wailing about the need "to rip the roots of systemic racism" out of America.

    Does that sound like Harry Truman or JFK?

    So the lines are drawn for 2020.

    On one side are those who believe America is a good country, the greatest the world has ever seen, and that the men who created this miracle should be respected, revered and remembered.

    That is not the view of the left wing of the Democratic Party.

    For even as the fireworks were exploding on the Mall, a Baltimore mob was tearing down, smashing up and dumping into the Inner Harbor a landmark statue of Christopher Columbus.

    That statue stood next to the Baltimore neighborhood of Little Italy and had been dedicated in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan.

    Do the haters of Columbus think that destroying Columbus' statues across America will not anger and alienate Americans of Italian descent who revere the explorer? Does Biden think Italian-Americans will reward a candidate and party that will not renounce the mob that did this?

    As the left wing of the Democratic Party embraces the "defund the police" movement, how long will it hold onto voters who are today watching murder rates climb to new records?

    During Independence Day weekend in Chicago, 80 people were shot, and 17 of them killed.

    In New York City, the number of shooting victims has risen this year by 50%. In June, there were 250 shootings, an increase of 150 over June 2019. Mayor Bill de Blasio's response: cutting $1 billion from the NYPD budget.

    Over July 4, an armed Black militia arrived at the reopening of the Stone Mountain monument in Georgia, which features huge carved images of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. They want its destruction.

    Trump is charged with "dividing the nation."

    But it is not Trump trashing cops or providing cover for "protests" marked by looting and arson. Nor is it Trump tearing down memorials and monuments to the great Americans of the past.

    Where the Democratic Party has been a portrait in indecisiveness, Trump has been clear. He stands with the cops who have gone through a hellish six weeks. He stands against defacing statues and destroying monuments. He has denounced the rioting, looting and arson that have accompanied protests the media never cease to describe as "peaceful."

    It is not Trump who is dividing America. He has pledged to resist the rampages with all the weapons in his presidential arsenal.

    There are four months until November's election, 18 weeks until America decides: Do we want to continue an era of protests that revert to rioting, looting and arson? Do we want to see police departments further constricted and trashed as neo-fascist?

    Do we wish to see statues of presidents from Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln and Grant to Teddy Roosevelt trashed by mobs that hate America, hate her heroes and hate her history?

    Trump's stand for tradition and against mob rule is the only stand the president can take. And it is a necessary stand. For this culture war is going to last long after this presidency. And it is going to determine what kind of country we shall become.

    Will it be the great and glorious republic of the past or the social and cultural Marxist hellhole that is the promise of the mobs?

    Trump just played the patriotism card, the correct card to play, and it may just work for his reelection.

    Pat Buchanan swooned daily over Sarah Palin. It's no surprise that he would like Trump.

    The idea that Trump supports law and order is ridiculous. He breaks or ignores the law daily. I wonder how folks actually fall for that. He has even said he's above the law and also he has no responsibility. That is not the sort of person who upholds law and order.

    Perhaps it's code for "He'll sic the cops on the 'right people'".



    We would do well to remember that Robert E Lee did not want statues of himself, did not want statues celebrating the cause which was lost.

    Preserving monuments to treasonous losers really shouldn't be a national priority. Not in a time of disease and economic depression.

    You seem to be taking a partisan view of this DT and making up excuses for what is wanton destruction of other people's property and national treasure.

    There is some merit to taking confederate monuments and putting them in a separate statue or monument park with the appropriate context and explanation given. This was done by the city of Budapest in terms of Soviet Statues that had to go and it is now a very popular tourist attraction. That is quite different from destroying and defacing works of public art in the name of who-knows-what. Comparisons to the Taliban may be a bit over-the-top, but not by much.

    The state governments are working in tandem with the Taliban folks...of course, the governments are sanctioned by...the government. We can always point to the 'destructive' ones, that has always been a favorite of the favored. No one can 'appreciate' violence but one sure can justify it.
