Pro-Trump capitalists fire the first serious warning shot in Capitol


In June, 2020, we wrote that, the whole picture indicates that all these far-right militia groups together with a significant part the US police force are forming a loony army of Trump defenders, driven by racism, ultra-conservative ideas and far-right extreme conspiracy theories.

These fanatics have become so loyal to their leader - who happens to be the President of the United States - that they will do whatever it takes to see him in charge for another four years. As Trump's popularity has taken a downturn, his "brigades" are ready to take action in case he loses November's election. Especially if he loses marginally.

Previously, we explained that, what we see now in the United States with Trump, is a counter-attack by the part of the American capital against the globalist faction. The faction that is primarily consisted by the liberal plutocracy. Therefore, as the capitalist class splits, the capitalists around Trump are now taking with them the most conservative part of the American society, as they need electoral power. They have the money and their own media network. Their first big victory was Trump in the US presidency and this explains why the liberal media attack him so hard and so frequently.

Consequently, all these crises of the last two decades revealed more and more clearly this merciless war among the capitalists. As these have the real power with the big money and the big media, this war not only overshadows every effort for a real alternative against the capitalist system. It even brutally crushes every attempt for a democratic revival. The rampageous bulls of capitalism are fighting each other in an arena in which democracy has now turned into dust under their violent clatters.

And under these circumstances, the capitalists won't hesitate to throw in the arena the expendable US working class. To fight on their behalf in an equally merciless civil war.

The recent, unprecedented events with Trump supporters storming US Capitol, could be interpreted as the first serious warning shot by capitalists around Trump. They have already thrown in the arena several working class Americans and they already sacrificed five of them. Unfortunately, this may be only the beginning. Because this ruthless capitalist faction won't give up so easily after Biden's victory.
 
Indeed, as we already explained, capitalists around Trump have now very few options. Despite the fact that Trump's attitude helps their liberal opponents in the capitalist war, it seems that it's the only thing they got right now. Considering that Trump managed to build a solid army of fanatically devoted, ultra-conservative followers, the capitalists around him will use them to escalate tension and even provoke a working class civil war. Especially in case of an elevated threat against them from the liberal capitalist faction during Biden's presidency.  

The alternative for pro-Trump capitalists would be the formation of their own political party, with Trump in the leadership, to run in 2024. Although Trump managed to create a solid base with fanatic supporters, such a political attempt won't have good chances to take power in the next general election.

Apart from that, four years of Biden (or probably Harris in the end) in the US presidency, will give enough time to the liberal plutocrats to fully restore neoliberal order and deal with most of the pro-Trump capitalist faction, once and for all. The most significant ally of the pro-Trump capitalists outside the US will remain Boris Johnson. And they will probably use him to sabotage international agreements in an effort to maintain some negotiating power against the liberal capitalists.
 
Pro-Trump capitalists gambled heavily with the unprecedented events in Capitol. They actually gave to their capitalist liberal rivals exactly what they wanted. Now, liberal capitalists will demand law and order and will place every attempt for a revolutionary change into the same basket with Trump's mob storm in Capitol. Progressives inside and outside the Democratic party will not dare to even mumble anything about Socialist policies, as the DNC "barons" will constantly reminding them the enormous danger of a Trump 2.0 comeback. Liberal capitalists will unconditionally demand "unity" from all party members and voters through their DNC proxies, more than ever.
 
The best hope for pro-Trump capitalists right now is an article of impeachment against Donald Trump by the House Democrats that will seek to charge him with "inciting violence". This will probably make Trump fanatics even more angry, and no one will be able to predict the consequences during the days until Biden's inauguration day. 

Unfortunately, what the US working class doesn't seem to understand, is that it is expendable for both capitalist factions that are now fighting each other. And that both these capitalist factions won't hesitate to shed the blood of the US working class in a brutal civil war, just to protect their interests. Inside this terrible pandemic, Americans must finally understand one thing: that their real, common enemy is the capitalist elites of all sides. And that they must fight that enemy, united.

    Better put: Their capitalist liberal rivals gave themselves exactly what they wanted. The DC police
    received no help at all from the governors of DC, the US congers and their employee, the DC mayor.

    Bless them every one.

Proof Twitter censored anyone CIA & FBI told them to!

The Jimmy Dore Show   When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.

January 21, 2010: The day corporate dictatorship destroyed the last remnants of US Democracy

globinfo freexchange     As we described many times in this blog, corporate power grew rapidly since the early 70s with the rise of neoliberalism and its subsequent establishment as the dominant culture, especially in the West.  In the motherland of neoliberalism, the United States, corporations essentially legalized corruption in politics during the 70s in order to capture the entire political system and put it under their complete control. As David Harvey describes in his book A Brief History of Neoliberalism :                          The supposedly ‘progressive’ campaign finance laws of 1971 in effect legalized the financial corruption of politics. A crucial set of Supreme Court decisions began in 1976 when it was first established that the right of a corporation to make unlimited money contributions to political parties and political action committees was protected under the First Amendment guaranteeing the rights of individuals (in this instance corporations) to freedom of speec

Julian Assange and the rapid decline of liberal Democracy

by system failure We are now in 2023, and after 1362 days, Julian Assange is still in prison. If you seek something to measure the decline of liberal Democracy in our days, the Julian Assange case will help you a lot. And it's most amazing that in the era of information overflow (with plenty of means available to transfer it almost instantly in every corner of the planet), there are still many people who are unaware of the Assange case.   The origins of this deterioration go back in 1968 when the Left made a disastrous compromise with the powers of the establishment. Since the early 70s and after Nixon's shock , the cultural domination of neoliberalism paved the way for the restriction of certain types of liberties in Western societies.  The 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 became the perfect opportunity for the establishment to abolish instantly a significant portion of the civil liberties that came out of the 1968 compromise. The liberal Democracy in the West suffered a heavy

New JFK/CIA revelations & our alarmingly secretive security state

Glenn Greenwald   Allen Dulles was probably the second or third most powerful person in Washington - maybe the most powerful in 1950s - when he ran the CIA until JFK fired him in 1961 because he blamed Dulles for the failed fiasco in the Bay of Pigs invasion in Cuba. And Dulles had every reason in the world to want to kill Kennedy, as did a lot of people in the CIA.  

China pushes de-dollarization with gold reserves, Argentina yuan currency swap deal

Advancing global de-dollarization, China’s central bank is boosting its gold reserves while signing currency swap deals in yuan with countries like Argentina, encouraging the use of renminbi instead of US dollars.   by Ben Norton  Part 4 - China uses currency swap lines to help debt-burdened countries, while advancing de-dollarization China began conducted currency swaps with Argentina back in 2009, under left-wing President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Deals have been repeatedly renewed since then. But the South American nation is not the only country that has worked out a system like this with the East Asian giant. In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Beijing’s central bank is using an “ unusual channel ”: “ currency-swap lines to support governments that borrowed heavily from Chinese banks ”. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has given hundreds of billions of dollars worth of yuan to dozens of countries in exchange for their domestic currencies, the newspaper repor
