WHO’S DRAWING FIRST BLOOD IN THE CIVIL WAR OF 2018?

Will the Liberals or the Conservatives Start a Civil Unrest?

“…mainstream right is a bit different. It’s not as well organized, for a start. The vast majority of right-of-center Americans aren’t actually very interested in politics, because they’re focused on work and family. When right-wingers do get annoyed about a political issue they’re less likely to do anything about it, for the same reason – they’re busy getting on with their lives. On the other hand, if they do get pushed hard enough that they decide to take action, they’re a lot more capable of creating some serious unrest. A lot of that is down to the simple fact that the right has more guns than the left, and tend to know how to use them.”

Editor’s Note: This article is written by Giurgi C. and does not necessarily reflect this website’s options and beliefs, but it portrays some scenarios that are likely to happen.

Prepping is a safeguard against a whole range of possible scenarios, and everyone has their own opinions about what’s most likely to happen and what would be the biggest threat. There’s one thing pretty much everyone can agree on, though, and that’s that widespread civil unrest is going to bring on a social collapse, at least in the affected areas and maybe right across the country.

Who’s likely to cause this civil unrest, though? Does anyone have the ability to throw large parts of the USA into chaos? We’ve all seen often enough how local issues can spark unrest in a neighborhood or even a small city, but could the same happen on the scale of a county, a state, the whole Midwest or Atlantic seaboard?

Yes it could, and the most likely way it’s going to happen is that some incident upsets politically active people – not just in the town where it happens, but across the state or the country – so much they decide enough is enough, and try to bring about a radical change. That’s happened hundreds of times throughout history, in all sorts of countries – and while the USA is unique in many ways, it’s not unique enough to be immune from the threat of mass civil unrest.

Experts don’t argue about whether unrest could happen in the USA. It could; that’s a done deal. What they do argue about is where it’s most likely to come from. Any part of the political spectrum can be pushed into rebellion but for that to happen to the majority who’re pretty much in the center, things really have to be bad. More usually, when unrest happens it comes from either the right or left. It doesn’t always come from people who could be labeled as extremists either – often it’s people who’re identifiable to one side of center, but not particularly hard line.

Left or Right: Who Wants to Fight?

Listen to anyone on the left and they’ll tell you that the biggest threat of civil unrest comes from heavily armed groups on the “far right” or “alt-right”. On the other hand, speak to anyone on the right and they will say that the real danger is the organized and violent flash mobs of Antifa and other “far-left” groups. Are they both correct, or is one – even both – wrong?

There’s no doubt that left and right both have extremes who’re more than willing to use violence. There aren’t a lot of them on either side though, so it’s unlikely they could directly cause widespread civil unrest. What they might be able to do is cause enough trouble to provoke a backlash from the mainstream on the other side, and that really could become civil unrest.

Thanks to the media it’s right-wing extremists who get the most attention, but in fact, their numbers are very small. There are neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups in the USA, but most of them are tiny and too disorganized to cause any serious trouble. There have been lone wolf terrorists on the American far right, with Timothy McVeigh being the most notorious. They’re sometimes capable of committing serious atrocities, but mass civil unrest is beyond them.

Left-wing extremists are more numerous, unfortunately. The largest extreme left group in the USA right now is Antifa – but, with an estimated 15,000 hardcore members, even Antifa isn’t big enough to create civil unrest at a national level. Law enforcement could put down an Antifa uprising inside a couple of days. The far left might not like that, but it’s still a fact.

The mainstream menace?

But what about the mainstream left – the tens of millions of Americans who see themselves as on the left of the spectrum, but reject extremist positions like Marxism? Could they reduce the country to chaos? Yes, they could.

Mainstream leftists don’t have the enthusiasm for violence that groups like Antifa are notorious for, but they do have an endless appetite for getting involved in causes. Any perceived “injustice”, from border control to employment policies, is likely to attract a horde of protesting lefties. Usually, nothing much happens beyond legitimate political protest, but sometimes things can get out of control.

If there’s a large protest movement, and its members feel they’re not being taken seriously, tempers can rise. If the people who’re getting angry are well enough organized this is where civil unrest can break out – and the problem is that large parts of the left are very well organized. This end of the political spectrum is closely linked to labor unions and a large, interlocking network of pressure groups; they’re very good at spreading messages, exploiting social media and getting people mobilized.

Many on the left also don’t have a lot of respect for the society we live in. They would like to see it “reformed” into something that fits their ideas better, and this attitude makes it easy for them to justify breaking the law. That’s why left-wing protests are prone to violence and looting; if everything you see around you is a symbol of oppression and inequality, it’s tempting to lash out.

The mainstream right is a bit different. It’s nothing like as well organized, for a start. The vast majority of right-of-center Americans aren’t actually very interested in politics, because they’re focused on work and family. When right-wingers do get annoyed about a political issue they’re less likely to do anything about it, for the same reason – they’re busy getting on with their lives.

On the other hand, if the right does get pushed hard enough that they decide to take action, they’re a lot more capable of creating some serious unrest. A lot of that is down to the simple fact that the right has more guns than the left, and tend to know how to use them. Any large, heavily armed, combat-effective insurgency in the USA would pretty much have to come from the right; the left just doesn’t have many people with those sort of skills.

Where’s the danger?

Both liberals and conservatives have the potential to create mass civil unrest if they decide they want to. That shouldn’t be a surprise; people are people, whatever they believe, and while some belief systems seem to encourage violence in their followers any of us can be pushed to rebellion by the right factors.

If conservatives rose up that would be more disruptive, and more dangerous to the government. Firstly, conservatives are more heavily armed; secondly, they have an inbuilt respect for law and order, so for them to start overthrowing society they have to be very angry.

Realistically, though, the political left is the main threat when it comes to civil unrest. They’re organized, they get upset easily and there are a lot of them. Most unrest in western countries is caused by leftist groups, and the USA Is just as vulnerable as anywhere else. Our citizens might be better armed to protect themselves, but mass action by the left could still tear society apart in a hurry. If that happens, all the systems we rely on in everyday life will soon fall apart across the whole area affected by the disorder – and, unless you’re prepared for that, you’re in for a pretty hard time.

THE NEXT BIG QUAKE! HOW MUCH OF CALIFORNIA WILL SLIDE INTO THE PACIFIC?

PLEASE note: NUKE Power Plants the real danger!!!

134 In One Week! Experts Warn This Could Be The Beginning Of The Big One

Some experts are convinced that a large quake, WHICH IS  expected could destroy the area FROM MONTEREY COUNTY TO LOS ANGELES.

WORSE YET,  a scenario can unfold which could see earthquakes causing nuclear deaths that far outweighs what would happen in the event of an actual nuclear exchange between two nations!  Fukushima, we know, had a meltdown in at least one unit caused by the earthquake, independent of the tidal wave that crippled the other reactors.

Still, when “a whopping 134 earthquakes within three miles of that 4.6 tremor were recorded”  last week, as the Daily Star confirms to be the case, not much is said. ARE THEY HIDING SOMETHING?

When “a series of 10 mini-earthquakes struck Monterey County in the US …” since last week, almost nothing is said about the threat to that power plant.

It is even reported that a “4.6 magnitude quake 13 miles northeast of Gonzales, along the San Andreas Fault” was recorded, the largest one so far. We are seeing a lot of activity. This means that, no matter how dire the quakes and aftermath may be, the death toll will be insignificant compared to what the ruptured nuclear power plants may unleash.

Those who have studied this worrisome activity say that a magnitude 7 earthquake or stronger is due to hit the area. These are many of the same prudent minds who were ignored as they warned that Fukushima was about to happen. Powerful names like Westinghouse and General Electric (TEPCO) are behind the reason the media is so awfully silent on such a dire matter.

Of the 134, “only 17 were stronger than a 2.5 magnitude and six greater than 3.0,” according to data compiled from the USGS.

Ole Kaven, a USGS seismologist, predicts aftershocks from this activity, too. “This one has been a quite productive aftershock sequence. We suspect there will be aftershocks in the 2 to 3 [magnitude] range for at least a few more weeks.” We have been on the lookout for smaller earthquakes, as well.

Regardless of what the nuclear industry likes to try and convey, we are ill-prepared for a strong quake and sadly, one seems due to hit the area. While these smaller shakers are not enough to cause a meltdown, these are but harbingers or whispers of what is to come. These can be thought of a banshee warning mankind of the violent shaking that is to occur.

This area is set to see a lot of rocking.

For over 150 years, terrible pressure has been accumulating on the San Andreas fault, and it is not even the only active fault line in the region. California has 300(!) active faults and Seismologist Lucy Jones of the US Geological Survey, says that San Andreas is the most threatening at the moment.

When we have a big San Andreas earthquake it’ll be felt in Las Vegas and in Arizona. It may be felt in the Bay Area,” she warns. “The damage and death unleashed by an earthquake that size would be catastrophic.”

How will any nuclear power station hold up as this happens beneath it?

It would take only one reactor to meltdown, melt out (explode from within), or melt through (to the water table) to be the end of American life as we define it. The authorities have already shown that they are more than willing to hide, downplay, and deny all data, so if a disaster happens, we WILL be lied to.

In no time at all, cancers, heart issues, blood traumas, and diseases too graphic to think about is so close to a turkey feast, will show the depth of their lie.

However, by then it will be far too late for that to matter.

“W” I Still Like the Guy!

 

See First-Time-Published Photos of George Bush During 9/11

George Bush and 9/11 are two very emotional topics for many. Recently discovered photos of President George Bush during the 9/11 crisis are sure to stir up emotions again. It was a time of National tragedy, of strong leadership, and deep sorrow.

According to The Blaze:

A collection of never-before-seen photographs released to PBS this week in response to a Freedom of Information Act request provide a look at President George W. Bush’s response to the September 11 attacks.

The images, released Friday, were the third batch of its kind released in response to an open records request. Last summer, hundreds of images were published by the U.S. National Archives showing the entire administration in the hours after the Twin Towers collapsed.

The photographs show Bush in the Florida classroom immediately after being informed of the attacks, consulting with aides in Air Force One and preparing to address the nation in the Oval Office.

What do you think? Do these photos change your feelings about George Bush? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.

While I’m disappointed “W” isn’t embracing Trump, (neither did a lot of us until after Ben Carson and Ted Cruz were out of the race) and despite his several errors, I still think a lot of good things about him! FOR EXAMPLE,  he inherited the Bill Clinton “Technology Bubble” that was about to burst! Despite that catastrophe he turned the economy around quicker than Obama did after the “Housing Bubble” burst.

Then, in his last year in office, he took the hit for the damage the democrats did after taking control of Congress in January 2007! While he didn’t warn the folks about the “Housing Bubble” he did try to get Congress to fix it, but since it was a democrat Congress they ignored his efforts and actually rebuffed him with Barney Frank and others making speeches that pooh-poohed his entreaties.

Also, when he started to show some of those liberal traits of his father, he quickly backed off when the party base showed their ire! Some examples: Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court;  Dubai ports deal; amnesty for illegal aliens and the like.  I agree Iraq was his most grievous error, but before leaving office, along with General Petraeus, they created a very stable circumstance there.  If Obama listened to him about leaving a residual force, Iraq would never have descended into the current turmoil. He did all the right things in Afghanistan, but again Obama let that get out of hand because like too many democrats, he felt The USA shouldn’t be winning wars!

George W we miss you!  I pray Trump will keep his word and restore our nation to they stable place it was before the democrats took control of Congress in January 2007!
