The Kosher Grocery Store Shooting and the Murder of Liberty

Jersey City shooting claims its place in the expanding antisemitic threat narrative.

While many people want to know the motive behind a shootout at a Jersey City kosher grocery store, The New York Times conflated the fatal incident with a larger antisemitism narrative. We might not know the names or be allowed to view the social media accounts of the alleged shooters, but we know they hated Jews, according to a narrative-peddling corporate media. 

An assailant involved in a prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, had published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online and investigators believe the attack was motivated by those sentiments, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said on Wednesday.

This is how it now works. If you’re an antisemite involved in murder, you leave behind a “rambling manifesto,” either posted on social media or left on the backseat of your car. 

It looks like the Times is on the inside track, same as they were when Judith Miller peddled neocon lies about Saddam Hussein. 

Within hours, both the media and government were telling us the attack targeted Jews.  Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, who is Jewish, said the suspects specifically targeted the grocery store. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted:

Statements issued by the state need a theatrical element in order to send the message to a largely indifferent public, so de Blasio announced the nation’s largest city is now locked in a “state of high alert.”

On Wednesday, the shooters were supposedly identified.

David Anderson is supposedly a member of the “Black Hebrew Israelite” movement.

The Black Jew aspect of this story is an interesting side note. Anthropologist James E. Landing, in his book Black Judaism: Story of an American Movement, writes that Jews and Christians reject the assertion Blacks were the original Hebrew Jews. 

Black Judaism is … a form of institutionalized (congregational) religious expression in which black persons identify themselves as Jews, Israelites, or Hebrews … in a manner that seems unacceptable to the “whites” of the world’s Jewish community, primarily because Jews take issue with the various justifications set forth by Black Jews in establishing this identity. Thus “Black Judaism,” as defined here, stands distinctly apart from “black Judaism,” or that Judaic expression found among black persons that would be acceptable to the world’s Jewish community, such as conversion or birth from a recognized Jewish mother. “Black Judaism” has been a social movement; “black Judaism” has been an isolated social phenomenon.

This “extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement” was highlighted by the Southern Poverty Law Center as racist and supremacist. “Around the country, thousands of men and women have joined black supremacist groups on the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement, a black nationalist theology that dates back to the 19th century,” the SPLC wrote more than a decade ago. 

Its doctrine asserts that African Americans are God’s true chosen people because they, not the people known to the world today as Jews, are the real descendants of the Hebrews of the Bible. Although most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence, there is a rising extremist sector within the Hebrew Israelite movement whose adherents believe that Jews are devilish impostors and who openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery.

The SPLC characterizes the movement as “the reversed-color mirror image of the Christian Identity theology embraced by many white supremacists, which holds that mainstream Jews are the descendants of Satan and that white people are the chosen ones, divinely endowed by God with superior status over ‘mud people,’ believers’ term for non-white individuals.”

African Hebrew Israelites emigrated to Israel in the 1960s where they endure racism to this day, not only by Jewish citizens but also the “apartheid” government (if Israel were truly an apartheid nation, it would establish Bantustans for Palestinians instead of engaging in slow-motion ethnic cleansing and the wholesale theft of Palestinian land).  

Black Hebrews, according to Haaretz, are “in appalling fashion… still viewed by some Israelis as outsiders to be scorned. They are regularly referred to as kushim—a racial slur for black people—on the street, in the Hebrew press, and even by government representatives who clearly should know better.”

Last November, the FBI, with the avid assistance of the Anti-Defamation League, reported an increase in “hate crimes” against Jews following the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. CBS News reported: 

Anti-Semitic crime spiked in New York City, home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel, in the weeks leading up to the Pittsburgh massacre, CBS News reported last week. There were 31 anti-Semitic hate crimes reported in the first 28 days of October in the city, compared to 9 for the same period in 2017, a New York Police Department spokesman said. The Anti-Defamation League also released a report that found social media harassment targeting Jewish Americans increased around the 2018 midterm elections and two-thirds of those online attacks were from people, not bots.

Notice how the corporate media conflates physical violence against Jews with politically incorrect thought crime posted on social media. 

The FBI says it will launch training for law enforcement officers on how to identify hate crimes and report the data to the federal government. The Department of Justice also launched a new hate crimes web site which has information for law enforcement about reporting hate incidents.

In August, the FBI said it will go after “white supremacists” and others involved in the dissemination of “conspiracy theories” on social media and the internet. The FBI states “individuals’ belief in hoaxes and conspiracy theories led to or could have led to violence. They included the Tree of Life synagogue shooting, the Pizzagate conspiracy, and the QAnon conspiracy,” Business Insider summarizes. 

In the bizarro world of staged and exploitable political events and a 24/7 stream of propaganda, timing is everything. Thus, President Trump will today sign an executive order “to interpret Judaism as a nationality and not just a religion, a move that the Trump administration believes will fight what they perceive as anti-Semitism on college campuses, a White House official said,” according to CNN.

It’s an order that would allow Trump to take further steps to combat anti-Israel sentiments and divestment movements on college campuses by requiring colleges and universities to treat those movements as discriminatory in order to keep their funding.

Trump will use the “federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 that requires educational institutions receiving federal funding to not discriminate based on national origin, according to senior administration officials.” 

Trump and his coterie of Israel-first neocons will further erode a seriously eroded First Amendment. They will force universities to single out and punish student Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists, thus violating a key principle of the Bill of Rights (now pretty much reduced to a doormat). 

In Koontz v. Watson, the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment protects the right to participate in a boycott. “Broadly speaking, the court’s decision in this case is likelier to be cheered by those on the left, where most of the energy behind boycotts of Israel emanate, and to be jeered by the Republicans and conservative Democrats who’ve lately pressed ahead with multiple efforts to legislate against economic boycotts of Israel,” explains Conor Friedersdorf, writing for The Atlantic. 

The Jersey City shooting will claim its place in the expanding antisemitic threat narrative. BDS poses direct economic harm to Israel, so it must be equated with hatred, antisemitism, the Holocaust, and marching Nazis (and now Black Hebrews). 

Likewise any principled criticism of Israel, of its ethnic cleansing, political malfeasance, assassinations, illegal bombing raids against neighbors, the murder of medics and journalists, and its ongoing and largely successful effort to outlaw critics and undermine their natural right to speak their minds.

Nazi Nation

All Donald needs to do now is grow the appropriate mustache.

Forget about Russians stealing the election. Democrats and Never Trump neocons are pushing the Nazi angle, or the white nationalist or supremacist angle to discredit the Orange Narcissist. They insist he is a card-carrying racist wandering the halls of the White House vested in a white sheet, muttering threats against carpetbaggers, scalawags, LGBTQ, QUILTBAG, GSRM, and MOGAI persons. If you watch CNN, you will discover the hatred is palpable. 

Of course, any self-respecting Nazi naturally hates and wants to harm Jews, but this side of the Trump Nazi configuration is missing. 

Trump loves the Jews. He loves Israel. He’s buddies with Bibi Netanyahu. His son-in-law is an Orthodox Jew (and his daughter converted) in deep support of fanatical Jewish settlers, the kind that destroys olive groves, floods Palestinian crops with raw sewage and runs down Palestinian kids when they are encountered on the road. 

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted:

Donald Trump, King of Israel, loved by the Jews of Israel. He moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, said the Golan and the West Bank are Israel’s to do with whatever it pleases (namely, ethnically cleanse and establish Jewish-only settlements). In Petah Tikvah, they named a roundabout after Trump. For Zionist Jews, Trump is the best president ever. It’s almost like he’s the president of Israel.

According to a University of Maryland poll:

Israeli Jews’ love for the U.S. president. Fifty-nine percent of Jewish Israelis have a favorable opinion of the president, including more than 70 percent of Haredi Jews and non-Haredi religious Jews. Even among secular Israeli Jews, 45 percent have favorable views of Trump, and 30 percent have unfavorable views.

This love fest is muddying the white supremacist waters. How can Trump be a self-respecting Nazi and white supremacist if he loves and is loved in return by Israeli Jews? Of course, this “love” is conditional, based on a continuation of money confiscated from witless American taxpayers flowing into Israel along with a lot of high-tech weapons to keep the “holy land” a Jewish-only state. 

Here’s the problem. When Trump-haters say “Nazi,” they’re referring to a Hollywood generated version of a Nazi. Few understand what a real Nazi is, let alone a fascist. Cognitive dissonance resonates. The word is nothing but a weakly understood pejorative dragged out whenever somebody disagrees with somebody else over largely irrelevant political issues (while far more serious problems fester in the shadows). 

Most fail to realize fascism is corporatism and the real fascists are sitting on the boards of transnational corporations and international banks. They fund the DNC-RNC (two heads of a hydra state) and corporatist foundations fund many leftist and progressive organizations.

Donald Trump isn’t a Nazi, a fascist, or even nationalist. He’s a malignant narcissist and a crony capitalist previously neck-deep in corruption and shady business deals. 

But none of this matters. The narrative is set in stone. Trump, the deplorables, the RNC, conservatives, libertarians—all are Nazis. Reality does not enter into the equation. Fantasy is spun by the propaganda media. All Donald needs to do now is grow the appropriate mustache.

So look for a lot of Nazi nonsense in the months ahead. Get ready for congressional hearings on white nationalism, more deplatforming, more Antifa attacks, and possibly more mass shootings attributed to Nazis, white supremacists, Proud Boys, Norse rune symbol tattoo psychopaths posting rambling manifestos on 8chan, and a host of cartoon villains featured between adverts for prescription drugs on CNN-MSNBC-CBS, etc. 

Of course, on the day a handpicked Democrat steps into the White House, all this Nazi business will evaporate. Nazis were not an issue when Obama was president, although the SPLC and ADL obsessively set off fire alarms warning about white nationalist terrorists.

About that White Nationalist Dirty Bomb

It doesn’t get much more absurd than this. 

The hyper-exaggerated threat of white supremacy has taken a serious turn—the racists now want a dirty bomb and are working in that direction with their very own Atomwaffen. 

It doesn’t get much more absurd than this. 

In 2004 and 2013, according to a report posted by Foreign Policy, “the FBI arrested two white supremacists interested in acquiring and detonating a dirty bomb.”

Moreover, these are not “lone wolves.” They are part of an extremist network bound by white supremacist ideology, far-right hate, and online indoctrination. And there is no shortage of evidence that they want to acquire their own radioactive weapons.

The evidence? Two disparate incidents nearly a decade apart by accused white supremacists allegedly in possession of radiological material and instructions for constructing a dirty bomb. 

This is a repeat of what the national security state said about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda: they worked on a dirty bomb. There is absolutely no evidence al-Qaeda ever had nuclear material, same as there is no evidence Saddam had WMDs. Both of these lies were used to escalate and project the manufactured war on terror. 

The idea is to instill a pervasive fear in the populace. How do they know that white guy with a tattoo at Walmart isn’t a terrorist “radicalized” by the internet and conspiracy theories. 

The idea is to make us afraid of each other and forget the real source of our problem—a ruthless Machiavellian corporate state using high-tech propaganda, staged and orchestrated events, black and white ops and fronts to shape the sociopolitical landscape and dominate global economics. 

Although Donald Trump is a total failure and predictably jettisoned most of his campaign promises the moment he took office, the reaction to his victory by the establishment demonstrates how seriously they take the interruption and audacity of this crude outlier and his basket of deplorables. 

And the deplorables? They’re white nationalists, formerly white supremacists, before that KKK, prior to that under a rock somewhere. This point is driven home continually in The New York Times and The Washington Post: Trump is a racist, his supporters are racist, every single one a race supremacist, misogynist, redneck living and breeding dangerously in flyover country.

In fact, the average deplorable—and just about everybody else—works harder and longer while the middle-class shrinks and wealth is sucked upward into the coffers of corporations and banks. The average deplorable is sick and tired of an expensive, inefficient, scandal-wracked, partisan and politically divided government ignoring the people. They’re afraid of the future because that future terminates in endless debt owed to cover for today and yesterday’s bankster gambling debts, wars, and the ever-ongoing production of killing machinery. 

Maybe a few thousand out of millions and millions are white supremacists and a small number of them are criminals, same kind of dynamic in any other ethnic group. 

For obvious political purpose, many non-white ethnic groups were systematically given special status by the state decades ago. It’s argued this special status is required because the various racially collectivized groups are endangered by the majority. 

Due to this, it is no longer simply in bad taste to denigrate a government-designated special status group. It is now a red flag indicating probable terrorist activity, which can then be prevented in precrime fashion by the state and its national security apparatus. 

After 9/11, that enemy was over there, and although the propaganda media pounded home the narrative that Americans would become the targets of terrorists at any given moment, most Americans didn’t really give the idea too much thought as the country moved away from September 11. Polls show the economy and healthcare as the primary concern. Part of the failure is due to the fact the Muslim-Arab threat engineered by the government was perceived as something over there, not here at home. 

Now we’re told it is here. If the state can convince America there is a white nationalist problem, then nobody is safe. Paranoia becomes a tool for shaping public perceptions through corporate mass media. Lawmakers make laws outlawing “hate speech” based on vague description (for instance, “white nationalist” could be anyone who is white and perceived as patriotic and supporting the Americanized version of European civilization, which is portrayed as racist, sexist, colonialist, and white-entitled by some of the ethnic groups with special rights granted by the state for political reasons). 

The political discussion in America, if we can call it that, is strident and polarized to the extreme. It’s worse than it was during the Vietnam War. I witnessed all of that and this is far worse, especially with an economic tsunami bearing down on us. 

Both Democrats and Republicans are going to pile on this white nationalist thing—which is nothing but another psyop on the American people. The state and military and law enforcement agencies down to militarized local police are gearing up to confront an organized white menace looking for revenge on the victimhood special status folks—and in the process, as usual, missing the real source of their growing misery.

Ever since the national security state took over after the Second World War, we have weathered a series of evil adversaries—Stalin,  Khrushchev, the entire Red Menace for more than thirty years, Castro, then the intrepid Viet Cong, followed by Saddam, Osama bin Laden, various spin-offs on the Wahhabi theme, and now the Hitler-loving Nazis, white supremacists, nationalists, nativists, deplorables.  

The psychopathic elite and their national security state juggernaut of death and suffering are in constant and insatiable need of enemies and two minutes hate. How better to put the finishing touches on a full-blown surveillance and police state than crowing repeatedly about the terrorist who may be your next-door neighbor.

Protective Stupidity and the Manufactured White Nationalist Threat

Criminal sanction for not dutifully following the narrative.

I’m probably as sick and tired of white supremacist canard as you are. I keep harping on it because I’m convinced it is a perfect storm, that is to say a chance for the state to aggravate already record-high political division to the boiling point and exploit it in order to expand the police state and outlaw free speech as terrorism and providing aid and comfort to Nazis, fascists, white supremacists, and nationalists. 

Of course, this dinky minority (even the SPLC puts their numbers at a few thousand), is not a threat, at least not a threat on the scale of weekly shootings and murders in Chicago. 

The state and its media have blurred the lines between actual neo-Nazis and Trump-supporting “conservatives,” who are indeed MAGA nationalists, not racist white nationalists. The race part was added after Trump won the election. It fits the Identity Politics credo that declares all white people (especially white males) are somehow privileged and owe billions of dollars to “minorities at risk.” 

You know it is serious when the editorial board of the Gray Lady of Propaganda posts the following:

The awesome power of the state would work tirelessly to deny future terrorists access to weaponry, money and forums to spread their ideology. The movement would be infiltrated by spies and informants. Its financiers would face sanctions. Places of congregation would be surveilled. Those who gave aid or comfort to terrorists would be prosecuted. Programs would be established to de-radicalize former adherents.

The “awesome power of the state” was demonstrated when it incinerated men, women, and children at Waco, or when members of MOVE were incinerated (along with the rest of the neighborhood) in Philadelphia. 

On May 30 the FBI let us know the target. It’s not simply a handful of white supremacists. The threat comes from “fringe political conspiracy theories” that have the magical ability to make people “commit criminal and sometimes violent activity.” 

The editors The New York Times want the government to single out individuals, deny First and Second Amendment rights, close down bank accounts, and set-up the witless and incautious for phony terror attacks, a specialty of the FBI (the showcased arrest and trials of patsies reinforce the propaganda and the illusion of threat). The FBI also has plenty of experience with placing “spies and infiltrators” (the latter often responsible for initiating violence) in legitimate political organizations. In fact, it can be argued the FBI specializes in creating terror groups from scratch, as it did under its COINTELPRO. 

Did you buy something from Infowars or Breitbart, maybe a t-shirt or a coffee mug? According to the NYT, this makes you a “financier” of terrorism and you may face “sanctions,” whatever that means. Buying macho vitamins from Alex Jones is now considered giving “aid and comfort” to the enemy. 

More surveillance—of email, posts, chats, phone calls, browsing history,  and the daily activity of millions of people—will be required to stamp out the fake scourge of white nationalism. 

The NYT is calling for re-education camps. Maybe a congressional task force can be sent to China’s Xinjiang re-education camps to study how to mass brainwash thousands, possibly millions of people not on narrative. Special mental hospital-prisons might be in order. 

SF author Philip K. Dick came up with the concept of “precrime,” an effort to prevent crime before it happens. Dick’s story, The Minority Report, depended on “precogs” (mutants capable of precognition) to prevent future crimes. 

Instead of precrime, we face the stigma of thoughtcrime, a political crime described in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. 

Precrime detection is not necessary if the public is trained the idea of political change is not only impossible but a seriously punished thoughtcrime. 

The NYT editorial board has suggested the creation of thought police. Any deviation from Big Brother’s totalitarianism brought agents of Thinkpol and the Ministry of Love (Miniluv) down on those suspected of independent thought. 

According to the novel’s arch-nemesis, Emanuel Goldstein, 

Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity.

Protective stupidity is precisely what the state with the help of its corporate propaganda media is attempting to accomplish. 

If you don’t want to lose your job, have your bank account shut down, your children taken away by the state, your firearms confiscated by a SWAT team, and your every move strictly monitored by an increasingly sophisticated high-tech surveillance state, you’ll embrace cognitive dissonance.

For instance, that a handful of Arabs violated the laws of physics, made buildings collapse in their footprints, and had the debris of a large aircraft disappear from a Pennsylvania farm field and the lawn at the Pentagon.

Warning: This Blog Provides Material Support for Extremist Conspiracy Theories 

How long before this blog is accused of providing “material support” for terrorists?

The left, rallying behind a seething hatred of Trump, is tossing around ideas on how best to criminalize their political opponents. 

Mike Giglio writes for The Atlantic:

At the moment, there is a significant disparity in the amount of funds, personnel, and law-enforcement tools that America devotes to combatting Islamist versus white-nationalist terrorism. Finding a way to add white nationalists to the list of U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations could help address that, Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, told me. It would lower the bar for law enforcement to be able to charge a person for providing material support to white-nationalist terrorists.

How do we identify white nationalists? 

There are the obvious candidates—shaved head guys standard bearing Nazi flags (now inseparable from Gadsden and Confederate flags), marching in torchlight processions, or marked for life with Odal rune and Iron Cross tattoos. 

After Charlottesville and the so-called “Unite the Right” rally, the corporate media made it look like these people are a national security threat. The SPLC and the ADL would have you believe there are hundreds of thousands of violent racist white evil-doers spread across the country. 

But not even the SPLC can give you an accurate count—or even a clear definition—of what and who these terrible people are. 

From the Daily Beast:

The Southern Poverty Law Center hasn’t counted the members of the so-called “alt-right.” A press representative tells The Daily Beast that they’re not aware of any nationwide surveys designed to count them.

Even so, the SPLC claims to know the numbers:

However, they estimate that the KKK counts between 5,000 and 8,000 members nationwide. Back in the 1920’s, when cities across the south were erecting monuments to Confederate generals, the Klan had 4 million members. As Roger L. Simon points out, this would be an impressive decrease even if the population of the U.S. hadn’t swelled since the 1920’s. Back then, the Klan constituted about 4 percent of the entire U.S. population. Now, the KKK is near its nadir. That would make them less than 0.003 percent of the population, even on the higher end of the SPLC’s estimate. 

In the past, these folks were basically ignored, derided as anachronistic paranoiacs, even laughed at, but now, since the election of Trump, they are everywhere, more lethal and worrisome than the jihadi serial murderers of the Islamic State. 

The hysterical claim we face the threat of white terrorism is promoted by the corporate media. For instance, the Daily Beast (a subsidiary of IAC, a transnational media corporation):

Now, before it grows any stronger, should be the time to move against it with the same kind of concerted international focus of attention and resources that were trained on Osama bin Laden. Now is the time for a global war on white nationalist terrorism…

Networks of white nationalist apologists, sympathizers, supporters and facilitators—vital to any terrorist movement—are deeply embedded in the political and social fabric. They are literally the enemy within…

Voters in Western nations have to understand that the fellow travelers of white nationalist terrorism are not acceptable participants in modern democracies, and vote them out, or see that they are prosecuted, or both.

The FBI was instructed by Congress to provide a definition of a white domestic terrorist. It released a bulletin claiming for “the first time [the FBI] has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat,” according to Yahoo News. 

This recent intelligence bulletin comes as the FBI is facing pressure to explain who it considers an extremist, and how the government prosecutes domestic terrorists. In recent weeks the FBI director has addressed domestic terrorism multiple times but did not publicly mention this new conspiracy theorist threat.

The FBI is already under fire for its approach to domestic extremism. In a contentious hearing last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Christopher Wray faced criticism from Democrats who said the bureau was not focusing enough on white supremacist violence. 

The FBI—forever motivated to stay relevant and get its chunk of the federal budget— overshot the target.

The new focus on conspiracy theorists appears to fall under the broader category of anti-government extremism. “This is the first FBI product examining the threat from conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists and provides a baseline for future intelligence products,” the document states.

In other words, if people believe “conspiracy theories”—for instance, the events of 9/11 are misrepresented by the official narrative—they are “extremist” and “not acceptable participants in modern democracies,” and should be “prosecuted” as criminals providing “material support” to white supremacist terrorists more dangerous to America than ISIS. 

Meanwhile, conspiracy theories pushed by the state—Russia sabotaged the 2016 election—are elevated to unquestionable gospel truth. If you question this fairy tale, you’re either a Putin dupe or a believer in bad conspiracy theories, those that expose the crimes of government. 

How long before this blog and thousands of others are accused of providing “material support” for terrorists? Because “conspiracy theories” are now a national security threat, should I expect to be interviewed by the FBI, surveilled (more than usual), and possibly put in “protective custody” or sent to a mental hospital? 

It sure looks like things are going that way.

9/11 Commission-styled Witch Hunt of “White Nationalists” 

The state is pushing for an inquisition.

Jennifer Rubin, a resident Zionist op-ed writer at The Washington Post, believes it is time for the exceptional nation to take on white nationalists. She cites Freedom House, the supposed non-NGO that receives funding from the US government and specializes in undermining foreign governments.

A Freedom House official told me that rarely does the organization address a U.S. domestic issue. “When we do, it is because we feel like the actions of our leaders are threatening the very fabric of our democracy,” she said. “This is a moment like that.”

In addition, the chairmen of the 9/11 Commission, Tom Kean, a former Republican New Jersey governor, and Lee Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana, told USA Today that the country would benefit from an independent commission. Nevertheless, “both 9/11 leaders cautioned that the investigation they led benefited enormously from public and political support summoned in the aftermath of a catastrophic strike by foreign-born terrorists–a show of national and sustained unity that has yet to emerge from even the most deadly domestic attacks.”

There is little interest in such an investigation because most Americans don’t consider white nationalists out on the Kuiper Belt of political ideology as a national security threat. The average American is more concerned about the collapse of the middle class, rocketing health care costs, and a teetering economy. 

It’s the state, its political hacks, propagandized Democrats, intersectional activists, and neocon op-ed writers with an agenda pushing for a new version of the House Un-American Activities Committee focused on off-narrative Americans. White nationalism is an excuse to get the witch hunt moving along. 

Last week the FBI “identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat,” Yahoo News reported. 

The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that haven’t been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.

QAnon and Pizzagate top the list. In other words, if you believe the elite engage in pedophilia or there is a deep state effort to throw Trump out of office, you’re a top-level security threat. 

It’s all part of an increasingly hysterical push by Democrats to create a special category for conspiracy theorists. 

“The FBI is already under fire for its approach to domestic extremism. In a contentious hearing last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Christopher Wray faced criticism from Democrats who said the bureau was not focusing enough on white supremacist violence.”

Real violence—in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, and various other rat-infested and disintegrating metropolises—is not on the radar screen. This form of violence, racking up dozens of dead people every week, does not fit the identity agenda. The reason—too many of the perpetrators are from “oppressed minorities.” However, it does drive rising momentum to deny law-abiding Americans the right to practice the Second Amendment.  

Enablers of a technocratic police state, such as the Brennan Center for Justice, admit so-called white supremacist violence is statistically minuscule. However, the identity agenda requires this violence to be highlighted and magnified for propaganda purposes. 

Though far-right attacks represent just a tiny proportion of the violence that takes place in the U.S. each year, they require specific attention because they pose a persistent threat to vulnerable communities, particularly communities of color, immigrants, LGBTQ people, women, the disabled, and religious minorities. 

The FBI document doesn’t mince words. It’s not ambiguous about what constitutes a conspiracy threat to national security.

(U) NWO: A group of international elites controls governments, industry, and media organizations, instigates major wars, carries out secret staged events, and manipulates economies with the goal of establishing global rule.

(U) UN: The UN is being used by an evil global cabal to erode American sovereignty, strip away individual liberties, and bring foreign troops to American soil in order to replace democracy with global tyranny.”

(U) False Flags: The official story surrounding a given terrorist attack or mass shooting is a lie; the event was staged or conducted by the government to justify encroachments on civil liberties.

If you believe any of the above—and millions of Americans do—you might be arrested and thrown in a mental hospital like Brandon Raub, an ex-Marine who made the mistake of taking to Facebook to express his opinion 9/11 was an inside job. This has an ominous parallel with the Soviet Union. It threw dissidents in mental hospitals for the crime of criticizing communism and the totalitarian Soviet state. 

The FBI paper suggests a pre-crime scenario.

Based on the increased volume and reach of conspiratorial content due to modern communication methods, it is logical to assume that more extremist-minded individuals will be exposed to potentially harmful conspiracy theories, accept ones that are favorable to their views, and possibly carry out criminal or violent actions as a result… crowd-sourced conspiracy theories can influence which entities extremists choose to target. These examples also substantiate concerns expressed by some researchers who believe a rise of conspiracism, fostered in part by the Internet, may be accompanied by a search for scapegoats-those believed to be the conspirators’ allies, henchmen, or collaborators.

This will, of course, require massive surveillance of social media, websites, and individuals deemed a threat to the state. This is why the national security state began building an all-encompassing surveillance apparatus following 9/11, not to keep Americans safe from terrorists and other evil-doers but rather to keep tabs on any and all who might pose a political threat and, as J. Edger Hoover once said, “neutralize” that threat.

Manchurian White Supremacists

If you read this, you might be a domestic terrorist.

There are disturbing similarities between the shootings in El Paso, Pittsburgh, and San Diego. If news reports can be believed, John Earnest, the synagogue shooter in California, had it out for Jews, as did Robert G. Bowers in Pittsburgh. Both posted so-called manifestos online. So did Patrick Crusius, the alleged El Paso shooter, the difference being his manifesto denounced Mexicans. 

The alleged shooter in New Zealand, Brenton Tarrant, posted a manifesto denouncing Muslims. Dylann Roof, who allegedly killed nine people at a black church in South Carolina, also issued what the corporate media described as a manifesto. Tarrant is said to have left behind a 74-page document titled “The Great Replacement.” 

All these documents preach a similar form of racism described as white supremacy by the state and its corporate media. This racism is attributed to the so-called Alt-right or the New Right without evidence or even a clear definition of terms. It is also used to describe those of us who are not politically pigeonholed as right or left and yet are suspect for our critique of the financial class and its banking cartels and interlocked corporate structure. This is described by the state and its media as antisemitic, thus a hate crime.

Timing is everything, Several days before the incident in El Paso, FBI Director Christopher Wray told the Senate Judiciary Committee a “majority of the domestic terrorism cases we’ve investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence.” 

This was followed by Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren who declared white supremacy as a domestic terror threat. “We need to call out white supremacy for what it is: domestic terrorism. And it poses a threat to the United States of America,” she said during the supposed debate in Detroit last week. 

Then, on August 1, two days before the El Paso incident, it was reported the FBI “for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document. 

The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement).

QAnon “claims to have top-level security clearance and has allegedly teamed up with Donald Trump to bring down a global cabal of evil government figures and celebrities,” reports The Telegraph. 

The message is simple: if you believe high government officials might be involved in pedophilia, you’re likely a domestic terror threat. As for the conspiracy to oust President Trump, we have plenty of evidence this is indeed the objective of the state and its political establishment. 

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document states. It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

In other words, the rigged presidential sweepstakes where preferred candidates are handpicked and vetted—while black sheep Tulsi Gabbard is scoured by the corporate media for not parroting to the letter the war party line—will be protected from the vagaries of social media, thus making certain another Donald Trump does not arise from the mob. 

The following may soon be considered the raving of a criminal conspiracy theorist radicalized in the deepest shadows of the dark web. 

1. I don’t believe in coincidences. The appearance of several “manifestos” basically touting the same version of “white supremacy” prior to deadly mass shootings shouldn’t be considered a fluke, nor an orchestrated plot by the followers of Anders Breivik, who compared himself to Vidkun Quisling, the Nazi stand-in during the occupation of Norway. 

2. There is no logical political point to be made by killing innocent people. Mass murder certainly won’t rally the people to your ideology, so we’re expected to believe these accused killers are simply nihilists radicalized online and engaged in terror attacks driven by a visceral, illogical, and violent race-based impulse. 

3. I have no evidence these mass shootings are orchestrated by the state and its intelligence agencies. However, as a student of history, I can tell you that what is now unfolding has precedent on several levels—from the FBI taking over KKK klaverns in the 1960s during COINTELPRO to a number of purported racists working as informants (the most notable being Hal Turner). The same can be said for the violent left, most notoriously the Weather Underground and the Symbionese Liberation Army, the latter making itself headline material by kidnapping the granddaughter of propaganda specialist William Randolph Hearst. I believe these are orchestrated events similar to NATO’s Operation Gladio operations in Europe (specifically the Red Brigades).  

4. Manchurian candidates? It is entirely possible. The CIA has worked on this since the 1950s (see this document). There are glaring anomalies in the assassination of Robert Kennedy (Sirhan Sirhan claimed he was hypnotized), Martin Luther King (his family insists the government killed the civil right leader), and John Lennon (see my video here). Timothy McVeigh claimed the military implanted a microchip in his backside (although the media laughed this one off, there is evidence the military has experimented with chip implants; no autopsy was performed on the convicted bomber of the Oklahoma City federal building, so we will never know for sure). Then there is the Monarch program (the continuous use of so-called trauma-based programming techniques; reading this document will get you pegged as a domestic terrorist by our NSA overseers).  

5. In the weeks ahead, there will be a demand by Congress to crack down on “hatred,” that is to say information that does not follow the establishment agenda. Now that we are inching closer to conflating nonviolent “anti-government” activity with domestic race-based terrorism, it should be expected the current effort to de-platform critics and activists from social media will move into hyperdrive. I expect the user-board website 8chan and other alternative platforms such as Gab (where shooter Robert Bowers reportedly posted) to be taken down.

6. The Second Amendment will be further chipped away and “military-style” firearms will be outlawed, possibly even confiscated, although this will most definitely prove to be problematic with more than 393 million civilian-owned firearms in the United States. 

The online document attributed to Patrick Crusius strikes all the targets.

Immigration, racism, white supremacy. 

It’s said the manifesto was posted online, not long before Crusius deployed for his murder assignment at the Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, Texas. I live fifty miles west of El Paso. I know this mall, this Walmart.   

From LATimes:

Although authorities did not publicly confirm his identify or describe the precise contents of the manifesto, a document posted on the website 8chan hours before the rampage spoke about the “invasion” of Latino immigrants and said the writer agreed with the shooter who killed worshipers at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. That document was posted by an anonymous user who posted another document under the file name “P._Crusius.” That file was taken down, and it is not clear what it contained.

Here is what it contained: 

First thing you notice. Minus a few typos, the document is relatively well-constructed. It’s not rambling. Direct points are made and solutions for problems are called for despite obvious brutally. The Crusius Manifesto is a military-style document with detached narration that has all the charm of an eviction notice. 

The attack comes a few days after the FBI boss Christopher Wray went before Congress to warn about white supremacy violence. “I can assure you, and we are aggressively pursuing it using both counterterrorism resources and criminal investigative resources and partnering closely with our state and local partners,” Wray said. 

The FBI has a long history of “neutralizing,” as J. Edgar Hoover put it, all serious political challenge to the corporate state. During the reign of COINTELPRO, hundreds of organizations were surveilled and millions of citizens had their liberty violated, mostly for exercising the right to petition and speak out about the state. 

I believe this is the first of possibly several events in the lead-up to the 2020 election. The financial elite controls the US government, a rigged election system, and a formerly sophisticated propaganda corporate media. The empire has no intention of enduring another populist in the White House and thus the privileges of an imperial presidency. This sort of heavy lifting requires federal agency expertise. The CIA and FBI are not Trump’s friends. 

Cui bono on this one. 

The new hyped domestic threat of white supremacist violence will require all law-abiding Americans with firearms to suffer further prohibition on what is a natural right. 

With every attack, the white supremacist model is tweaked. The anti-government angle is played up. It’s conflated with racist violence directed at Latinos and other races. Jewish organizations warn antisemitism is on the rise. Muslims worry about attacks on mosques. More division and fear. There is a historically significant amount of political and cultural polarization across the country.

The State Needs an Enemy: Warren Warns About “White Supremacist” Threat

Commies, Islamists, and the threat of white supremacy.

The national security state requires a roster of enemies to justify its existence. Beginning in the late 1940s, it was the Commies, not simply the Soviet Union but Commies everywhere—in the State Department, the neighborhood PTA, even under your bed. 

This lasted until the fall of the Soviet Union. At that point, Bush the Elder told us we’d get a righty deserved “peace dividend,” in other words less “defense” spending. This was, of course, a grand illusion designed to fool the average American and steer the “guns and butter” discussion in the appropriate direction—feeding the military-industrial complex.

After the largely illusory threat of communism was vanquished, new enemies appeared. Beginning in the 1990s focused turned to the Middle East, first the wholly manufactured threat of Saddam Hussein, and then radical Islam, which, minus the FBI’s staged 1993 World Trade Center bombing, did not pose a threat to America or even its most favored nation, Israel. 

As the political class and the corporate media are wont to remind us, everything changed after 9/11. That event significantly increased the power and authority of the national security state (primarily the DoD, NSA, CIA, and new agencies, notably the Department of Homeland Security and an array of private-sector corporations). 

Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and then the Islamic State served the purpose of growing the national security state to leviathan proportions and in the process diminishing the semi-liberty of the American people on a grand scale. 

All threats, however, have a shelf life. Trump supposedly defeated the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (in truth, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah did). Even so, the Islamic threat remains on a back burner, ready to re-emerge when needed. 

Now we have super-threats, according to there state and its political class—Russia and China—with a scattering of minor non-threats, namely Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua (the last two recycled from the earlier period). 

Beginning in 2016, we were subjected to the absurd fairy tale of Russia, through Facebook ads, unbalancing the US election system (long rigged in favor of the political class) and the result was the victory of the execrable Donald Trump, a populist primitive and former reality TV star. 

The corporate media has wasted little time along with the Democrat side of the one-party hydra associating Trump with racism, sexism, nativism—the polar opposite of the adopted identity politics control device taken on by the state—and thus manufacturing the new threat: the alt-right and white nationalism or white supremacy. 

Supposed white nationalists are way out on the political fringe in small numbers and yet we’re told every day by the propaganda media most domestic terrorist acts are committed by racists, bigots, Nazis, and Trump supporters. More people are killed every week in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, and other engineered wastelands, but this doesn’t contain any political capital, with the exception of outlawing firearms and self-defense, so it is irrelevant. 

During the Democrat “debate” in the ruin of Detroit, Senator Elizabeth Warren declared war on white supremacy. It was tucked neatly in with the rest of the identity theology. 

Meet the new enemy. The liberal corporate media has worked overtime to portray anyone to the right of Elizabeth Warren as a domestic terrorist. It’s not simply a small and mostly insignificant number of skin color-obsessed neurotics posing a dire threat to America, it’s anybody who opposes the identity-socialist agenda. 

The militarized police state and a posse comitatus-busting Pentagon stand ready to fight this new threat. After all, white supremacy affects all walks of life, according to Warren and the Democrats.
